Abstract

During seasons of heavy rainfall, specimens of wool showing evidence of matting and sometimes discoloration are frequently received for examination. Two similar but quite distinct conditions have been recognised, namely mycotic dermatitis ("lumpy wool") and fleece rot, which not only damage the fleece and reduces its value, but also render affected sheep to blowfly strike.
