Abstract

A disease of calves with symptoms of fever accompanied by anaemia and jaundice and the passage of reddish-brown urine has been known to occur in Western Australia for many years. This disease is commonly known as redwater and it has been responsible for heavy mortalities in the dairying districts of the South-West. It may also affect adult cattle but the cases are usually sporadic and outbreaks are infrequent and such losses as do occur are associated with reduced production rather than mortality
