TheSheepSite Quick Disease Guide

The impact of diseases within the sheep flock can range from annoying to catastrophic but all impact not only the profitability of the farm but also the health and welfare of the animals.

This brief guide introduces some of the major diseases, infections and ailments that can occur and links through to sections in the Veterinary Book for Sheep Farmers by David Henderson where more detailed information about the various diseases can be found.

We are also grateful to the English Beef and Lamb Executive, NADIS and Moredun University for their assistance in compiling this guide.
