Studies on the response of ewes to live chlamydiae adapted to chicken embryos or tissue culture. (1/1489)

Ewes infected before gestation with chicken embryo or tissue culture adapted chlamydial strain B-577 were challenge inoculated with the homologous strain at four to 18 weeks of gestation. The ewes responsed with group specific complement fixing antibody titers of 1:8 to 1:256 by the second week after initial infection. A secondary antibody response in the surviving challenge inoculated ewes occurred at the time of lambing and reached titers of 1:32 to 1:256 by the second week after parturition. Group specific complement fixing antibodies did not appear to play a significant role in resistance to chlamydial infection. Ewes infected with the chicken embryo adapted strain B-577 excreted chlamydiae in their feces 60 days after inoculation. However, chlamydiae were not recovered from feces of ewes infected with the tissue culture adapted strain B-577. Placentas of ewes challenge inoculated by the intravenous route were consistently infected. Chlamydiae were recovered from placentas, some fetuses and lambs. In two instances when challenge inoculation was given by the intramuscular route, infection was detected only by the direct fluorescent antibody method.  (+info)

Predicting insecticide resistance: mutagenesis, selection and response. (2/1489)

Strategies to manage resistance to a particular insecticide have usually been devised after resistance has evolved. If it were possible to predict likely resistance mechanisms to novel insecticides before they evolved in the field, it might be feasible to have programmes that manage susceptibility. With this approach in mind, single-gene variants of the Australian sheep blowfly, Lucilia cuprina, resistant to dieldrin, diazinon and malathion, were selected in the laboratory after mutagenesis of susceptible strains. The genetic and molecular bases of resistance in these variants were identical to those that had previously evolved in natural populations. Given this predictive capacity for known resistances, the approach was extended to anticipate possible mechanisms of resistance to cyromazine, an insecticide to which L. cuprina populations remain susceptible after almost 20 years of exposure. Analysis of the laboratory-generated resistant variants provides an explanation for this observation. The variants show low levels of resistance and a selective advantage over susceptibles for only a limited concentration range. These results are discussed in the context of the choice of insecticides for control purposes and of delivery strategies to minimize the evolution of resistance.  (+info)

Potential value of major antigenic protein 2 for serological diagnosis of heartwater and related ehrlichial infections. (3/1489)

Cowdria ruminantium is the etiologic agent of heartwater, a disease causing major economic loss in ruminants in sub-Saharan Africa and the Caribbean. Development of a serodiagnostic test is essential for determining the carrier status of animals from regions where heartwater is endemic, but most available tests give false-positive reactions with sera against related Erhlichia species. Current approaches rely on molecular methods to define proteins and epitopes that may allow specific diagnosis. Two major antigenic proteins (MAPs), MAP1 and MAP2, have been examined for their use as antigens in the serodiagnosis of heartwater. The objectives of this study were (i) to determine if MAP2 is conserved among five geographically divergent strains of C. ruminantium and (ii) to determine if MAP2 homologs are present in Ehrlichia canis, the causative agent of canine ehrlichiosis, and Ehrlichia chaffeensis, the organism responsible for human monocytic ehrlichiosis. These two agents are closely related to C. ruminantium. The map2 gene from four strains of C. ruminantium was cloned, sequenced, and compared with the previously reported map2 gene from the Crystal Springs strain. Only 10 nucleic acid differences between the strains were identified, and they translate to only 3 amino acid changes, indicating that MAP2 is highly conserved. Genes encoding MAP2 homologs from E. canis and E. chaffeensis also were cloned and sequenced. Amino acid analysis of MAP2 homologs of E. chaffeensis and E. canis with MAP2 of C. ruminantium revealed 83.4 and 84.4% identities, respectively. Further analysis of MAP2 and its homologs revealed that the whole protein lacks specificity for heartwater diagnosis. The development of epitope-specific assays using this sequence information may produce diagnostic tests suitable for C. ruminantium and also other related rickettsiae.  (+info)

Performance of competitive and indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, gel immunoprecipitation with native hapten polysaccharide, and standard serological tests in diagnosis of sheep brucellosis. (4/1489)

Competitive and standard enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), rose bengal (RB), complement fixation, and agar gel immunoprecipitation with native hapten (AGID-NH) were compared by using sera from Brucella-free, Brucella melitensis-infected, and B. melitensis Rev1-vaccinated sheep. The most sensitive tests were indirect ELISA and RB, and the most specific tests were AGID-NH and competitive ELISA. We show that RB followed by AGID-NH is a simple and effective system for diagnosing sheep brucellosis.  (+info)

Evaluation of modified BACTEC 12B radiometric medium and solid media for culture of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis from sheep. (5/1489)

Definitive diagnosis of Johne's disease in ruminants depends on confirming the presence of the causative bacterium, Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis, in tissues of the host. This is readily achieved in most ruminant species by culture. However, culture of clinical specimens from sheep in many countries has been unrewarding. Such a culture from sheep was achieved recently in Australia by using a radiometric culture medium. The aims of the present study were to evaluate the culture of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis from sheep by using modified BACTEC 12B radiometric medium, to determine the sensitivity of culture in relation to histopathology, and to evaluate a range of solid media. Culture of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis from sheep with Johne's disease is a sensitive method of diagnosis: intestinal tissues from all 43 animals with multibacillary disease and all 22 animals with paucibacillary disease were culture positive, while 98% of feces from 53 animals with multibacillary disease and 48% of feces from 31 animals with paucibacillary disease were culture positive. Of sheep without histological evidence of Johne's disease from infected flocks, intestinal tissue from 32% of 41 were culture positive, while feces from 17% of 41 were culture positive. Consequently, culture is recommended as the "gold standard" test for detection of ovine Johne's disease. Of the wide range of solid media that were evaluated, only modified Middlebrook 7H10 and 7H11 agars, which were very similar in composition to modified BACTEC 12B medium, yielded growth of ovine strains of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis. The sensitivity of detection of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis on solid media was slightly lower than that in modified BACTEC 12B radiometric medium. Both egg yolk and mycobactin J were essential additives for growth of ovine strains of M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis in both liquid and solid media.  (+info)

Human echinococcosis in Bulgaria: a comparative epidemiological analysis. (6/1489)

The present article describes the importance of human echinococcosis as a public health problem in Bulgaria, outlines the control measures carried out and evaluates comparatively the situation over three periods spanning 46 years (1950-1995). During the first period (1950-62), a total of 6469 new surgically confirmed cases of hydatid disease were recorded in Bulgaria, with an annual incidence of 6.5 per 100,000 population, and the infestation rate in domestic animals and dogs was high. Echinococcosis was endemic throughout the country. The organization of a control campaign, initiated in 1960, led to a considerable improvement in the situation during the second period (1971-82). Morbidity among humans gradually decreased, with an average incidence of 2.0 per 100,000, and the proportion of infected animals also fell. The distribution of echinococcosis was characterized as sporadic or of low endemicity. During the third period (1983-95), owing to administrative irregularities and economic changes, funds for supporting the campaign were reduced and control structures were dismantled. As a result, the incidence rose to 3.3 per 100,000. Echinococcosis again became endemic, in some regions hyperendemic. The findings provide convincing evidence that cessation of control measures or reduction of campaign activity can lead to intensification in the transmission of Echinococcus granulosus and to a resurgence in echinococcosis to previous levels.  (+info)

Vaccination with cathepsin L proteinases and with leucine aminopeptidase induces high levels of protection against fascioliasis in sheep. (7/1489)

The potential of different parasite proteinases for use as vaccine candidates against fascioliasis in sheep was studied by vaccinating animals with the cathepsin L proteinases CL1 and CL2 and with leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) purified from adult flukes. In the first trial, sheep were immunized with CL1 or CL2 and the mean protection levels obtained were 33 and 34%, respectively. Furthermore, a significant reduction in egg output was observed in sheep vaccinated either with CL1 (71%) or with CL2 (81%). The second trial was performed to determine the protective potential of the two cathepsin L proteinases assayed together, as well as in combination with LAP, and of LAP alone. The combination of CL1 and CL2 induced higher levels of protection (60%) than those produced when these enzymes were administered separately. Those sheep that received the cocktail vaccine including CL1, CL2, and LAP were significantly protected (78%) against metacercarial challenge, but vaccination with LAP alone elicited the highest level of protection (89%). All vaccine preparations induced high immunoglobulin G titers which were boosted after the challenge infection, but no correlations between antibody titers and worm burdens were found. However, the sera of those animals vaccinated with LAP contained LAP-neutralizing antibodies. Reduced liver damage, as assessed by the level of the liver enzyme gamma-glutamyl transferase, was observed in the groups vaccinated with CL1, CL2, and LAP or with LAP alone.  (+info)

imary concern for farmers in the region. Cows have a high environmental foot print and urine patches are a source of high N loading to pastures which can leach into ground water. A brief evaluation of the sheep meat and wool industry has been touched on to gauge how farmers are coping in the current environment and to provide an indication of motives which have initiated a shift from sheep farming to sheep dairying. Sheep milking in New Zealand is a very small industry and literature on production is limited therefore the review touches on the potential the industry has, given changing global demographics and the demand for protein products. The method utilised to study a range of sheep milking systems is a quantitative normative approach based on the collation of research material with the aim to draw positive conclusions. Computer modelling tools have been used to simulate the set-up of a sheep milking scenarios in Canterbury and provide an insight into the expected performance. Results ...

The gameplay is clever enough. In a fashion which feels inspired by the likes of Spy Mouse, Oh! Sheep has you navigate an obstacle course with the goal of getting all your sheep to the end. This is accomplished by drawing lines for each sheep to follow through and around a variety of traps - such as lasers, cannonballs, and blockades.. Along the way, your sheep will find berries to eat and obstacles associated with different colors, including their natural white. Youll need to time the movements of the sheep to get between the traps, as well as position them to activate their color-coordinated switches while the other sheep get through other portions of the stage. At the end, each must be moved to the appropriately-colored transporter so they can be picked up by a UFO and whisked away.. Generally speaking, its playable - and even fun - but there are a few issues which detract from the overall experience. One is that moving the sheep can be a bit tricky. While drawing lines works well enough, ...

Longtime reader, activist, and sheep farmer Anders Paulsson sent me this inspiring story that I just had to share:. On our farm in Sweden, we host herds of 150-300 Norwegian forest sheep. Their grazing area is about 25 hectares, split by a fenced-in grass landing strip for our farm plane and for guests flying in. The cool thing with the Norwegian forest sheep is that their fur is individually patterned. This makes it very easy to identify them.. So heres the interesting observation.. The fenced in grass gradually gets contaminated and grazed down, and thus the sheep have two options:. 1. Stay within the fenced-in area and make due of what is there, or. 2. Jump the fence, which, if motivated, they do easily as they are well insulated by their fur in regard to the electric wire… and then graze the very rich grass on the runway.. I have noticed that it is the same individuals (about 1-3%) that consistently jump the fence - and they bring their lambs with them too. I can almost hear the roar from ...

The study, published today in the journal Royal Society: Open Science, is part a series of tests given to the sheep to monitor their cognitive abilities. Because of the relatively large size of their brains and their longevity, sheep are a good animal model for studying neurodegenerative disorders such as Huntingtons disease.. The ability to recognise faces is one of the most important human social skills. We recognise familiar faces easily, and can identify unfamiliar faces from repeatedly presented images. As with some other animals such as dogs and monkeys, sheep are social animals that can recognise other sheep as well as familiar humans. Little is known, however, about their overall ability to process faces.. Researchers from Cambridges Department of Physiology, Development and Neuroscience trained eight sheep to recognise the faces of four celebrities from photographic portraits displayed on computer screens.. Training involved the sheep making decisions as they moved around a ...

Selective media were chosen and isolation and routine growth conditions were optimized for NZ D. nodosus serotypes. Approximately 1000 primary plates were anaerobically subcultured several times and examined with Gram staining in order to detect single colonies of D. nodosus. Both the variable region and a part of the conserved region of fimbrial subunit gene (fi ...
Sheep can be trained to recognise human faces from photographic portraits - and can even identify the picture of their handler without prior training - according to new research from scientists at the University of Cambridge.. The study, published today in the journalRoyal Society: Open Science, is part a series of tests given to the sheep to monitor their cognitive abilities. Because of the relatively large size of their brains and their longevity, sheep are a good animal model for studying neurodegenerative disorders such as Huntingtons disease.. The ability to recognise faces is one of the most important human social skills. We recognise familiar faces easily, and can identify unfamiliar faces from repeatedly presented images. As with some other animals such as dogs and monkeys, sheep are social animals that can recognise other sheep as well as familiar humans. Little is known, however, about their overall ability to process faces.. Researchers from Cambridges Department of Physiology, ...
Chronic non-progressive pneumonia is an important disease of three to ten month old sheep in New Zealand. The lesions invariably contain M. ovipneumoniae yet the disease, or at least its more severe manifestations, cannot be consistently produced by intranasal inoculation of isolates of this organism. This may be due to the existance of different strains of this organism. This in vitro study attempts to establish whether or not there is a large number of distinguishable strains of this organism. Comparison of M. ovipneumoniae isolates by the metabolic inhibition test showed that they differed but did not allow the recognition of well defined groups. The heterogeneity of M. ovipneumoniae was then examined using SDS-PAGE of total proteins and it was found that all isolates derived from sheep on twenty different farms differed except for three isolated from one farm. Protein bands on SDS-PAGE gels could be common to all isolates, shared by some isolates, or unique to individual isolates. ...

For nearly 17 years, plunge dipping has been the only method of scab control in the UK under a Government-controlled eradication campaign. Dipping is inconvenient and has been incriminated in the post-dipping illness of stockowners and contractors, and the disposal of large volumes of used dipwash is a potential hazard to the environment. Upon the deregulation of sheep scab in July 1992, stockowners are no longer obliged to dip and will seek alternative methods of scab control, ie, systemic injectables or synthetic pyrethroid pour-ons. Plunge dipping still offers the only fully effective method of controlling scab and it has a broad spectrum of activity against other ectoparasites of sheep. The present systemic pour-ons and oral drenches have little effect against scab, but double injections of systemic acaricides, ie, ivermectin, show great promise. The efficacy of systemic injectables is related to the initial mite burden and the second injection must not be omitted if complete control is to ...
Haemonchus contortus is the most pathogenic nematode of small ruminants. Infection in sheep and goats results in anaemia that decreases animal productivity and can ultimately cause death. The involvement of ruminant-specific galectin-11 (LGALS-11) and galectin-14 (LGALS-14) has been postulated to play important roles in protective immune responses against parasitic infection; however, their ligands are unknown. In the current study, LGALS-11 and LGALS-14 ligands in H. contortus were identified from larval (L4) and adult parasitic stages extracts using immobilised LGALS-11 and LGALS-14 affinity column chromatography and mass spectrometry. Both LGALS-11 and LGALS-14 bound more putative protein targets in the adult stage of H. contortus (43 proteins) when compared to the larval stage (two proteins). Of the 43 proteins identified in the adult stage, 34 and 35 proteins were bound by LGALS-11 and LGALS-14, respectively, with 26 proteins binding to both galectins. Interestingly, hematophagous ...

If, hypothetically speaking, I were looking for some Merino sheep, where might I find some? Perfunctory googling suggests New Zealand. Or Vermont. Not exactly practical. I dont think Ive ever seen any, even at yarn shows (I cant be sure. Ive always been far more interested in the end product)
From the rulebook: Every Sunday, you and your relatives meet at your dear Aunt Dolly’s place for tea and cupcakes. Dolly is a mad-keen knitter, whipping up a cosy garment every week. Its your job to supply her with the wool from her flock of happy sheep; the fleece of four sheep will meet her needs. However, she only wants wool of one colour- either black or white. And since her sheepdog Fang ran off with a Bichon Frise last year, those four sheep will need to be within arms reach for you to gather them in. Will you be the one who gathers the four sheep first, thereby winning Aunt Dolly’s biggest smile- and the biggest scone? Happy Sheep is a fast, fun game of strategy, memory and bluffing. It takes 15 seconds to set up, two minutes to learn, and five minutes to stop laughing when you trick someone into crying "Happy Sheep" and proving they don’t know black from white. Includes strategies for gamers and a simple variant for very young kids. How to play: Mix the 20

A large flock of sheep are crossing the road, oblivious to the impending danger. One leaps over an imaginary fence and the rest follow, as sheep are wont to do.. Without warning, one of them stops in the path of the oncoming semi-trailer. Suddenly, a man in a pair of blue overalls runs out onto the road, dragging a small trolley. He unrolls two cables and attaches large alligator clips to either side of the sheep, then flips a switch on the trolley.. The sheep leaps to life again, springing off the road to safety. The man in overalls quickly pushes his trolley out of the way, waving to the truck driver as he passes ...
Ancon sheep (also called Otter sheep) are a grouping of domestic sheep with long bodies and very short legs, with the fore-legs being crooked. The term is generally applied to a line of sheep bred from a single affected lamb born in 1791 in Massachusetts, USA. The breed was artificially selected and maintained for its desirable inability to jump over fences. It was allowed to go extinct in 1876 when it was no longer required. The name Ancon has also been applied to other strains of sheep arising from individuals with the same phenotype, such as a Norwegian stock bred from a single individual born in 1919, and a Texan, USA stock bred from a single individual born in 1962. These lineages were also allowed to go extinct after scientists no longer needed them for genetic research. Excavations in Leicester, UK have also revealed metacarpals, metatarsals and phalanges characteristic of Ancon sheep that date to approximately AD 1500, thereby demonstrating that the phenotype has arisen independently ...

Abstract. This study was carried out to estimate Calcium (Ca) and Magnesium (Mg) levels in the blood of lactating ewes infested with tapeworms in comparison with those of healthy sheep. Worms were diagnosed by microscopic examination of stool samples to identify eggs and adult worms. Blood and stool samples of twenty two lactating Awassi ewes (aged between 18-24 months) were collected; 12 samples represented positive infestation with tapeworms by clinical investigation, fecal egg count (FEC) and packed cell volume (PCV reported as percent). The results for blood packed cell volume of an individual ewe of this group fell below 20%, while (FEC) were above 1000 eggs per gram (epg), and 10 samples represented the control group whose fecal sample shows very low epg, while PCV was higher than 20%, with no clinical signs of parasitic infection. Tapeworms infestation in sheep causes a significant decrease in serum Ca levels, while no significant changes were observed in Mg level.. الهدف من هذه ...
Navajo-Churro sheep are a rare primitive breed, descended from the Churra, an ancient Iberian breed prized by the Spanish for its remarkable hardiness, adaptability and fecundity.. It was from Churro wool that the early Rio Grande, Pueblo, and Navajo textiles were woven -- a fleece admired by collectors for its luster, silky hand, variety of natural colors and durability.. These sheep with their long staple of protective top coat and soft undercoat are well suited to extremes of climate. The flavor of the meat is incomparably superior, with a surprisingly low fat content.. ​. Slow Food USA has put the Navajo Churro on the Ark of Taste, naming it a national treasure.. ​. Our sheep are rotated through our grass/clover pastures all year long and are proudly hormone-free, antibiotic free (except in the case of serious illness or injury), and come straight from our farm in Shelby County, Indiana. When necessary, they are supplemented with non-GMO grain mix.. ​. Our lambs are taken to a USDA ...
One of the more bizarre runner games, Sheep Happens takes some Greek myths and legends and mixes them with random sheep and a lot of humour. You take on the role of Perseus, who is on the trail of Hermes in a pair of winged sandals that just wont stop running. To catch him, you have to run through a stadium filled with athletes taking part in various events. Weightlifting sheep. Tug of war sheep. Hurdles, with the odd sheep running the track beside you. You get the idea; sheep are everywhere. There is some help. You have a cape that allows you to glide over some of the more difficult hurdles. And should you cause a sheep-filled chain reaction, the animals raining down will helpfully take out fellow athletes, hurdles and other obstacles, while also earning you a nice combo score. There are battles with Olympic gods too, in this chaotic, funny take on the traditional runner ...
The mechanics to this game can be quickly summed up. Tap the screen to shoot the Zombie Marionettes, tilt your iDevice to move your sheep, and shake your iDevice to reload your weapon. When I say shoddily made marionettes, it is not a knock on the graphics but these silly puppets start falling apart the second they appear on the screen and unless you manage to shoot them in the head quickly, their heads will leave their crumbling bodies behind and take the form of a deadly Flaming Skull. Your poor little Bait Sheep not only has to avoid the raining Flaming Skulls (if one hits your poor little sheep you?ll lose one of your initial 3 hearts), but has to scramble about to collect the dropping coins (how your sheep can pickup and store these coins is never really explained). So now, even though you and your sheep are marked for death and you can?t escape the haunted theatre, you?re more than free at any time to duck out of the action for a trip to the concession stand for sheep medications and ...

Contagious agalactia (CA) is one of the main contagious diseases that affect small ruminants. The main causal agent is Mycoplasma agalactiae, a contagious bacterium that leads to chronic infections. Prophylaxis is considered to be the most viable, economical and sustainable method to combat this pathogen. There are currently several inactivated vaccines against M. agalactiae in Spain. The objective of this study was to compare the short-term and long-term serological response to different commercial vaccines against M.agalactiae available in Spain.. ...
This one is going to need more than just your imagination. You need to make sure that all the sheep are safe and that the other things are gone from the screen. Once you click on the wrong sheep, you may lose it or you may lose the game altogether. It is not easy to figure it out in the first place, however, with practice you should be able to become an expert in looking after sheep with the click of a mouse. Therefore, dont waste time and start looking after your sheep!
Keith Kendrick and colleagues at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, England, investigated the sheeps ability to distinguish and remember faces of both other sheep and humans. Presenting 20 sheep with pictures of 25 pairs of sheep faces, the researchers trained the animals to associate one of the pair with a food reward. They determined that the sheep could recognize the individuals associated with a reward even in profile and for up to two years. By measuring activity in the right temporal and medial frontal cortices-regions of the ovine brain associated with visual recognition-the team further discovered that sheep can remember as many as 50 sheep faces in addition to a familiar human face. And sightings of familiar faces do not go unacknowledged. The scientists report clear behavioral signs of recognizing both absent individuals by vocalizing in response to their face pictures in the same way as they did to faces of other members of their current social circle. So the next time you hear a ...

Over time, utilising molecular-genetic and biological knowledge, this involved innovative pioneering of a new type of Merino sheep under the SRS system, focused on elite fibre production and multiple trait incorporation (meat, fertility, disease resistance). Part of this was the development of a mules-free, animal welfare and environmentally friendly sheep type. The Stud was dispersed in 2008.. Between 1990 and 1996 was co-founder and ...
Q. I see youve got 3 fine sheep in the field there, you say to the farmer. Actually, he replies, there might be 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 or 4, depending. Depending on what? Whats this wiseacre thinking? -B. Peep. A. Maybe wise thoughts, as he explains that 1 of the 3 is a lamb, say Michael Blastland and Andrew Dilnot in The Tiger that Isnt: Seeing Through a World of Numbers. So does a lamb still count as a full sheep, or is it half a sheep? Also, one is a pregnant ewe in advanced labor, he continues. Would that one be 1, 1.5, or 2? (Assuming no multiple sheep births.) Therefore, depending on how the units are defined, the sheep total could be any of the numbers I gave initially, says the farmer. Thus, suggest the authors, the farmer did successfully parlay the laughably simple example of 3 sheep into 5 answers, which is quite a spread, one of them twice the size of another, and counting to 4 just became ridiculous.. Moral: You can count on many things in life to be not quite what they first ...
Sheep are a prey animal. When they are faced with danger, their natural instinct is to flee not fight. Their strategy is to use avoidance and rapid flight to avoid being eaten.. Some primitive sheep breeds may be able to more effectively evade predators, as their natural instincts are stronger. Domesticated sheep have come to rely on man for protection from predators ...

Ive recently discovered the wonders of what is perhaps fashions best-kept secret-the scarf. Id always dismissed the scarf as a ridiculous gesture toward high fashion, or perhaps an errant nod in the direction of political activism. But this winter, I had the delightful opportunity to wear a scarf for the first time, and I have to admit, theres actually something there.. Now, Im not a scientist, though I do sometimes wear lab coats when all my t-shirts are in the wash. Im not quite sure why scarves have made such a difference in tempering me for the harsh Victorian winters. My suspicions would be that somehow the combination of upward air of the flatulogical type and the insulating nature of the wool has created a perfect storm of warmth and comfort. A corporeal vortex, if you will. A warm front moving up from the south-southeast with a variable chance of drizzle but a steady and improving scattering of light fog.. I remember when I first noticed people around me wearing scarves. Just a few ...

  • Since the 1960s, cooperative efforts from state and federal agencies to rebuild the herds were paying off, but now a disease outbreak at Joshua Tree National Park could pose a major threat to the majestic animals. (
  • Can this disease spread into other herds outside Joshua Tree National Park? (
  • Yes, the disease can spread to other herds. (
  • As long as domestic sheep continue to graze on public lands near major herds of bighorn sheep, the bighorns will remain at risk of catastrophic illness. (
  • SYRACUSE - Twenty-five bighorn sheep were released on Antelope Island Wednesday afternoon, as state wildlife biologists began work to reintroduce the species to the island after a respiratory disease mysteriously appeared and wiped out previous herds on the island. (
  • Much like pneumonia, it has gotten into this herd and these pathogens get into these wild sheep herds and they pass quickly from animal to animal," said Mark Hadley, of the Division of Wildlife Resources. (
  • In contrast, 9% of bighorn sheep herds were infected with unique strains of M. ovipneumoniae. (
  • In sheep herds where the disease has occurred, serumization can be done with polyvalent antiperfingens serum, and then the sheep can be vaccinated with inactive anaerobic vaccines. (
  • The data we work with - including numbers of sheep in each herd, ages and sex, movement patterns of individual animals and of herds, individual-level information about which bighorn sheep and which herds are affected by disease, and environmental factors surrounding outbreaks such as season, food quality, contact with domestic sheep, and other variables - comprise the most comprehensive long-term dataset on bighorn sheep health in the United States. (
  • Our research also suggests that pneumonia in bighorn sheep changes the age structure of herds, because adults tend to survive pneumonia outbreaks better than lambs. (
  • Bighorn sheep captured in Montana are released by biologists on Antelope Island on Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020. (

  • Impact on flock The disease is highly contagious and fatal, so will lead to increased mortality rates. (
  • Sore mouth disease (also known as contagious ecthyma) is thought to be responsible for an illness observed among bighorn rams in Yellowstone National Park. (
  • Because this disease is so contagious, a new population of bighorn sheep can't be reintroduced on the island until this herd is entirely eliminated. (
  • Contagious agalactia (white spot disease) - vaccination is applied preventively in the second part of pregnancy, but also, if necessary, during lactation. (

  • Scrapie is one of a group of diseases classified as spongiform encephalopathies , so named because the resultant deterioration of neurons causes a spongelike pattern to develop in the brain tissue. (
  • The scrapie-causing prion can be spread from sheep to sheep. (
  • Some sheep carry genetic variants that render the normal prion protein resistant to conversion into the abnormal form that causes scrapie. (

  • It has been suggested that up to 30% of sheep in a flock may have sufficient protective levels of antibody against ε-toxin in their system simply from subclinical infection. (
  • This may explain why only a handful of unvaccinated adult sheep may die from enterotoxemia when a flock of ewes gets loose and finds a pile of grain. (
  • These sheep should then be kept isolated from the rest of the flock until they are sold. (
  • They raise vegetables for 200 families and graze a small flock of sheep. (
  • The first was an outbreak of genital form of the disease in a flock imported from France, whilst the second was an outbreak of the disease in the udder skin of ewes and around the mouth of lambs in an indigenous flock. (
  • The present study was conducted between 2015 and 2016 to determine the flock seroprevalence of the disease in Algeria and to identify associated risk factors. (
  • The main source of infection in a flock are the PI sheep, which are born infected and spread the virus during their whole life. (
  • The idea to use sheep to study this disease arose in 1993 in New Zealand, a country where sheep outnumber humans seven to one. (
  • Researchers had already identified disorders shared by humans and sheep, but University of Auckland neuroscientist Richard Faull and geneticist Russell Snell had a more ambitious notion. (

  • We're seeing that, in response to the threat of their animals contracting the disease, farmers are moving their animals away from infected villages to where, so far, there have been no disease outbreaks, which has been spreading the virus to healthy flocks of animals. (
  • Recent research has revealed that Tay-Sachs disease exists in some flocks of Jacob sheep. (
  • 56 flocks from nine departments were visited and 689 blood samples were collected from adult sheep between 6 and 24 months of age ( n = 576) and from lambs younger than 6 months ( n = 113). (
  • This disease is a major killer of lambs from shortly after birth throughout the entire feeding period. (
  • Lambs born to ewes in the terminal stages of the disease may have birth weights as low as 2-3kg. (
  • Sheep farmers are being urged to post-mortem lambs with suspected Schmallenberg virus (SBV) to help reveal the extent of the increasing spread of the disease. (
  • It is too late to vaccinate sheep that are due to lamb this spring, and there is currently no vaccine for lambs. (
  • It is caused by an organism called Clostridium perfringens, and two major subtypes typically account for the vast majority of cases in sheep, types C and D. Type C principally produces a toxin called β-toxin (beta toxin) which is the actual agent of damage, and this form most commonly kills lambs less than 2 weeks of age. (
  • This graded exposure may allow immunity to develop and provide a natural level of protection to older lambs and grown sheep. (
  • Typically spread from ewes to lambs, the disease can manifest itself as scabby sores around the mouth and face. (
  • The optimal conditions necessary to produce Johne's disease involve oral inoculation of 3-month-old lambs with four doses of 5 × 10 8 CFU of M. avium subsp. (
  • Clinical signs in sheep are dominated by infertility, abortions, stillbirths, or even the birth of lambs with hairy fleeces called "hairy-shaker" or "blurred" or an abnormal body conformation. (
  • Also known as the thin-necked intestinal worm, Nematodirus battus is a particularly nasty disease in lambs. (
  • The difficulty with this worm is that it has a different life-cycle to other sheep worms and under certain climatic conditions can strike very quickly, with no warning signs in the lambs this means that sheep farmers have to be on their guard. (
  • After the initial die off, surviving adults have some immunity to the disease and rarely die, but pneumonia outbreaks may occur in new lambs every summer. (

  • There is field evidence that sheep develop immunity to the ε-toxin if exposed to subclinical doses of Clostridium perfringens type D. Subclinical infection may occur "naturally" in animals fed grain diets, as the organism thrives in the lower gut under conditions that allow a large influx of starch into the intestine. (

  • While mice and rats are used in the vast majority of disease studies in the UK, the sheep is an important new animal model for Huntington's disease. (
  • Even though we've known for decades now exactly which genetic mutation causes Huntington's disease, we're arguably still no nearer a cure - the best we can do is manage the symptoms," she says. (
  • The Huntington's disease sheep are already proving their value. (
  • However, changes in regulations allowed Professor Morton to import the Huntington's disease sheep. (
  • The imported sheep will be used to study brain and behavioural changes that cause Huntington's disease, with a particular emphasis on understanding the cognitive decline. (
  • These have been based on the tests used for monitoring symptom progression in patients with Huntington's disease. (
  • Hooves should be regularly checked for disease and excess growth. (
  • Sheep that live in rockier or dryer environments naturally wear down their hooves on the terrain, and therefore entail less maintenance. (
  • At the beginning of the grazing period, it is recommended to use a vaccine or a local treatment for the affected sheep, after cleaning the hooves and cutting the excess horn. (
  • Foot rot and foot scald are the two most common diseases affecting the hooves of sheep (and goats). (
  • Images of desert bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) in Joshua Tree National Park, including both healthy-appearing animals and some that show symptoms of pneumonia or respiratory illness. (
  • Biologists caution the public to avoid releasing domestic sheep or goats into the wild as they often are disease carriers even if they have no symptoms. (
  • Symptoms The disease, which can spread between goats and sheep, can present differently depending on the strain, which varies from country to country. (
  • There is no known cure for the disease, only ways to manage the symptoms. (
  • It has taken our collaborators in Australia years of research to develop these sheep, but we're already beginning to get insights into how the disease progresses, particularly before symptoms become apparent," says Professor Morton. (
  • The aim of treatment is to prevent the accumulation of the lipids and prevent the symptoms and progression of the disease. (
  • The disease of sheep fast blight is relatively sudden and has no obvious symptoms. (
  • The sick sheep will show neurological symptoms, swimming in limbs, muscle tremor, frequent eye rotation, excessive secretion in the mouth, and will die quickly within 2 to 4 hours. (
  • Sheep measles , also known as Cysticercus ovis , is the cystic stage of the dog tapeworm ( Taenia ovis ). (
  • Some can be managed, and, in some cases, progression of the disease can be slowed. (
  • Treatment of the animal is usually ineffective, due to the rapid progression of the disease in the animal. (
  • Our work in collaboration with UCL Computer Science on the sheep model of HD feeds into a larger CHDI funded project led by Professor Jenny Morton , Dept of Pharmacology , University of Cambridge that is focused on studying the behavioural deficits and pathology associated with HD and interventions to slow or prevent the progression of the disease.

  • Effect of vaccination schedule on serum antibody concentration against the ε-toxin produced by Clostridium perfringens , the causative organism of overeating disease. (
  • Vaccination is the cornerstone to prevention of this disease. (
  • Vaccination by inoculation of a vaccine (a biological preparation, which, after administration, triggers an immune response in vaccinated individuals) is a prophylactic method applied to activate immunization against certain diseases. (
  • Here are some infectious and parasitic diseases that most commonly affect sheep during grazing and can be prevented by vaccination or treatment. (
  • Gangrenous mastitis (black/blue bag) is an infectious disease that can cause gangrene of the mammary gland (which becomes red-purple, hot, and painful) in 50% of the cases and even the death of affected sheep.Control by vaccination significantly reduces the chances of developing the disease in both types of agalactia (white spot disease/blue bag). (
  • Viraemia and clinical disease in Dorset Poll sheep following vaccination with live attenuated bluetongue virus vaccines serotypes 16 and 4. (
  • There are, however, positive signs that the impact of vaccination campaigns has reduced the spread of the PPR disease by two-thirds in recent years. (
  • The aim of the project was to better understand the impact of OJD on New Zealand sheep farms and to determine the value of tools such as vaccination to manage the disease. (
  • We can optimise vaccination programs to suit your flock's disease risks. (
  • Pregnancy toxaemia in sheep (twin lamb disease, sleeping ewes disease, pregnancy ketosis). (
  • Pregnancy toxaemia is a multifactor disorder of energy metabolism affecting sheep during late gestation. (

  • Some diseases that affect sheep. (
  • Now fully revised and updated, the third edition takes a more international approach to the many diseases which affect sheep, with contributions from experts around the world. (
  • Learn about bighorn sheep pneumonia and why it's a serious problem for bighorn sheep. (
  • From the beginning, we wanted to step back from focusing on the question "What is the microbe causing bighorn sheep pneumonia? (
  • In September 2016, we randomly selected 519 serum aliquots from adult sheep from samples previously collected (July-August 2016) by the National Program for Surveillance, Prevention, Control and Eradication of Animal Diseases in 5 counties in northwestern Romania ( Figure ). (
  • Adult sheep were phenotypically classified as having severe, mild or no disease on the basis of clinical, pathological and cultural tests for paratuberculosis, and as positive or negative in tests for humoral immunity (agar gel immunodiffusion test) or cell mediated immunity (skin test for delayed type hypersensitivity). (
  • Adult sheep may be contaminated as well but show no typical signs and become carriers and sources of fecal-contaminated eggs.The treatment is done with albendazole in the doses specified on the products. (
  • It is typically an adult-onset disease, although there is a juvenile form. (
  • This toxin is produced by the bacterium Clostridium perfringens , found in the guts of livestock - most commonly in sheep. (
  • You will likely use 4 of your 5 senses (sight, smell, touch, and hearing) in detecting disease or injury of your livestock. (
  • The disease tends to be only noticed on introduction of naive livestock into an endemic area, e.g. for the purposes of improving local breeds by crossing. (
  • By 1900, the population had crashed to several thousand, due to diseases introduced through European livestock and overhunting. (
  • The disease can be passed between animals through the faecal/oral route, on contaminated ground or from the milk of infected ewes. (
  • A respiratory disease has nearly wiped out the entire population of rams and ewes. (
  • As the disease progresses ewes show aimless walking, muscle twitching or tremors of head muscles causing twitching of lips, champing of the jaws and salivation. (
  • Thin Cull Ewes can be screened for the presence of wasting diseases like Johnes, Maedi-Visna & CLA. (
  • Author affiliations: Military Veterinary Institute, Academy of Military of China for Infectious Disease (nos. (
  • The researchers have found that not only are these ruminants low-maintenance and parasite-resistant, they're also perfect blood donors for the microbiology tests necessary to diagnose infectious disease in the developing world. (
  • This approach will help to prevent the spread of this highly infectious disease. (
  • NSDV's known hosts belong to the hard tick family Ixodidae, including Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, and Amblyomma variegatum, and afflict sheep and goats naturally. (
  • Footrot is a disease affecting sheep, particularly in wet climates. (
  • Footrot is a major concern for the sheep industry. (
  • Dichelobacter nodusus is a gram-negative, anaerobic bacterium that was proved to be the pathogen causing footrot in sheep. (
  • Because of this, clean sheep usually contract footrot by coming in contact with contaminated facilities or soil. (
  • However, moist environments and soil between 40-70 degrees F are also conducive to the spread of footrot in sheep. (
  • In addition to the costs associated with footrot (and scald), hoof disease is an important welfare issue. (
  • Domestic sheep believed to have spread pneumonia to bighorns in B.C. (
  • Pneumonia can be transmitted to bighorn from domestic sheep and goats. (
  • White muscle disease is caused by low levels of selenium and possibly vitamin E. Signs include stiffness (especially in the hindquarters), tucked-up rear flanks, arched backs, pneumonia, and acute death. (
  • In sheep and goats, the majority of serotypes were associated with pneumonia, followed by gangrenous mastitis ("blue udder") and septicaemia. (
  • Our review of pneumonia in bighorn sheep published in the January issue of the Journal of Wildlife Management. (
  • Information like which bighorn sheep die, how old they are when they die, and how much past exposure to pneumonia they have had (that is, whether they have built up immunity) gives us important clues about how pneumonia microbes circulate and persist within bighorn sheep populations. (
  • Our analyses show that when pneumonia is first introduced into a population with no previous exposure (and hence no immunity), the disease often progresses through several stages. (
  • Bighorn sheep that have been translocated into areas with infected populations appear to have a high risk of developing pneumonia. (
  • Although finding out what microbe causes pneumonia was not our focus, one consortium member, Tom Besser, and his colleagues at the Washington Animal Disease Diagnostic Lab, have worked extensively on this question. (
  • A preliminary study of possible genetic influences on the susceptibility of sheep to Johne's disease. (
  • To investigate possible genetic influences on susceptibility or resistance of sheep to Johne's disease. (

  • To predict disease risk from any of the 26 Bluetongue virus (BTV) serotypes identified to date, experimental animal susceptibility studies are often conducted. (
  • The aim of this study was to determine whether secreted Culicoides salivary proteins injected simultaneously with virus, to more closely mimic midge‑delivered virus, would affect clinical disease outcome in a BTV‑8 sheep susceptibility study. (
  • However, susceptibility in individual sheep depends upon difference in rates of hepatic glucogenesis. (
  • A rare breed of sheep, known as Jacob sheep, has been used as a model in the research of Tay-Sachs disease, due to their susceptibility to the disease. (
  • ANTELOPE ISLAND, Utah - The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources says it must eradicate the entire population of bighorn sheep from Antelope Island State Park. (

  • Wild sheep crossed the Bering land bridge from Siberia into Alaska during the Pleistocene (about 750,000 years ago) and subsequently spread through western North America as far south as Baja California and northwestern mainland Mexico . (
  • Border disease virus was also isolated from deer, roe deer and other wild ruminants. (
  • Little is known about the UK sheep strain of the bacterium. (
  • Johne's disease in ruminants results in chronic enteritis caused by the pathogenic bacterium Mycobacterium avium subsp. (
  • Using nearly 600 isolates collected over a 33-year period, the five-member team studied the genetic structure of the bacterium Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae, the primary causative agent of bronchopneumonia, in the domestic and wild sheep and goats to better understand transmission and spillover dynamics of the pathogen. (
  • The reintroduction of Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep to Yosemite National Park's Cathedral Range in March 2015 was preceded by intense scrutiny of the location's possible vulnerability to contact with domestic sheep as a necessary precaution to the transfer of disease to the bighorns. (
  • The disease may enter into a wild population from domestic sheep or goats. (

  • Toxoplasmosis can cause early or late abortion in sheep and producers may only notice the disease impacts as a low lambing percentage. (
  • Diseases from domestic sheep can be fatal to native bighorns. (
  • Provincial wildlife officials say domestic sheep in the area may have introduced the fatal disease into the wild population. (
  • The government says the sheep may have been exposed to mad cow disease through contaminated feed before they were imported from Europe in 1996, and have quarantined the sheep since 1998. (
  • Recent GPS satellite tracking of the bighorns confirmed that some Mt. Warren bighorns had descended in elevation to within a half mile of sheep grazing pastures owned by Mono County as a conservation easement. (
  • Bighorn sheep live in close proximity to pastures where domestic sheep graze in Mono County. (
  • In the early days of farming, sheep were grazed on open pastures and were generally healthy. (
  • Defecation on sheep pastures, which are then grazed by sheep, can lead to larval invasion of the CNS, forming a cyst in the brain and clinical disease. (
  • The condition should be differentiated from hypocalcaemia, hypomagnesaemia, pariparturient diseases of central nervous system, lead poisoning, pulpy kidney disease, listeriosis and rabies. (
  • In sheep, this type of ETX poisoning is called enterotoxemia , or pulpy kidney disease. (
  • Overeating disease also known as 'Enterotoxemia' or 'pulpy kidney' disease. (
  • Border disease causative agent spreads with persistently infected animals. (
  • To understand how HD alters a sheep's locomotion (Picture 1: a locomotion test), patterns of social interaction (Picture 2: sociogram of interactions), and contribution to the dynamics of flocking behaviour (Picture 3: sheep flocking), we search for subtle differences between HD sheep and 'normal' control sheep across these different contexts. (
  • For all the many people worldwide who celebrated the return of the Sierra Nevada bighorns to Yosemite's Cathedral Range, the potential for severe consequences if there is contact between the Mt. Warren bighorns and domestic sheep cause deep apprehension. (
  • High morbidity and mortality are seen in both sheep and goats, although goats tend to have less severe clinical signs than sheep. (
  • Enterotoxemia is a frequently severe disease of sheep and goats of all ages. (
  • In sheep receiving the BTV‑8 + Cu SP inoculum, clinical signs were more varied, more severe, and duration was three times longer compared to sheep receiving virus alone. (
  • The disease is more severe, if onset is earlier than day 140 of gestation. (
  • The virus is transmitted by ixodid ticks and causes a severe hemorrhagic disease. (
  • Conversely, in mild winters, it has been shown to continue with its lifecycle, causing severe disease during the winter and early spring months. (
  • However, one thing is well-documented: wild sheep loose in virtually all close encounters with domestic animals. (
  • An account of "wild sheep" in the vicinity of the Mission San Antonio near Jolon, California and the mountains around San Francisco Bay dates to circa 1769. (
  • Reporting any sick, coughing or dead bighorn is important to the monitoring of the disease and its spread throughout the park. (
  • Close contact during housing can increase the risk of disease spread. (
  • Determining the true extent of the spread of the disease will inform activity taken to protect against SBV going forward. (
  • They could have received the respiratory pathogens there, then come back with the disease that spread quickly. (
  • According to Aberdeen-based Lynn Batty, who works with the health schemes, by presenting sheep from a batch of blood-test negative animals, breeders can be certain they are doing all they can not to spread CLA. (
  • If this is true, I hope the situation is taken seriously by authorities so that further spread of this disease is stopped. (
  • Building upon the 2014 Farm Bill's authorization of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network to summon federal resources with states, industry and universities to reduce disease impact, provide rapid detection and response, as well as develop disease prevention and mitigation to include vaccines, prevent entry and spread of foreign animal diseases into the U.S., plus identify and support critical research needs. (
  • The muscle tremors spread to other body parts and the sheep falls with tonic-clonic convulsions. (
  • Sheep with Ovine Johne's disease often have high parasite burdens and, as a result, faecal egg counts. (
  • This can lead to misdiagnosis as a parasite issue when Ovine Johne's disease is the real cause of emaciation. (
  • Therefore, if all other diagnoses are ruled out and Ovine Johne's disease is diagnosed, the infected sheep should be culled. (
  • 41 ) found that five sheep given 10 10 CFU of a direct tissue isolate of ovine M. avium subsp. (
  • People may count sheep when they cannot sleep, but when they do finally drift off their brains generate the same type of brain wave as their ovine counterparts, according to new research published in eNeuro . (
  • The gene defective in the ovine disease is different to the recently identified gene for a juvenile form of NCL, CLN3. (
