Abstract

Recent research has thrown new light on the essential nature of the disease of ewes known as pregnancy toxaemia. That it was basically a nutritional disease was well established, but it is now known to be primarily a brain disorder caused by a decrease in the quantity of blood sugar supplied to the brain.
