Meat inspectors at abattoirs record a lot of information about diseases and disorders of sheep and cattle. This information is mentioned briefly in stock health reports that are sent to producers who consign animals to Robb Jetty or E.G. Green abattoirs.
Department of Agriculture veterinarians have compiled information on these disorders and diseases for this publication.
This Bulletin provides information on the cause and appearance of each disorder, its economic significance, and how to prevent or treat it. Producers who need further information should contact a veterinarian.
