Abstract

MYCOTIC dermatitis is a common disease of the skin and overlying wool of sheep (and other herbivorous animals).

The photographs show the typical crusts and scabs which result from infection of skin, hair and wool follicles by the mycotic dematitis organism.

This article reviews the causes of lumpy wool infection and sets out control measures.

Erratum

CORRECTION "Mycotic Dermatitis (Lumpy Wool) of Sheep"—July Journal of Agriculture. Page 185, column 2, line 3 should read— "at the rate of 32,000 units per lb. of body weight."
