Abstract

LEAD is the most frequent cause of poisoning in farm animals, especially of cattle.

All animals and man are susceptible to large doses, but small repeated doses may accumulate to toxic proportions in the body.

Cattle and sheep are more susceptible to poisoning and are more likely to have access to sources of lead.
