Abstract

Infectious enterotoxaemia or the so-called "pulpy kidney" disease of sheep has been known to occur in Western Australia for many years and has been responsible for heavy though largely preventible losses. The earliest record of its occurrence dates back to 1915 when it appears to have been confined to the Great Southern districts and was known as "Beverley disease." With the cultivation and cropping of farm lands, it has since spread from that centre and, at the present time, the whole of the agricultural areas are involved.
