Abstract

Although less dramatic and spectacular in its effects than diseases such as entero toxaemia, which may lead to heavy losses of sheep over short periods, footrot is undoubtedly one of the most serious diseases with which the sheep industry has to contend. It causes tremendous financial losses every year through reduced production of wool and meat; and the lowered physical condition resulting from footrot infection m a flock may contribute to sheep losses from other causes.
