Abortions in Sheep - AS1317
The lambing season can be the most exciting time of the year for a sheep producer. The long awaited opportunity to evaluate that new ram or great set of replacement ewes finally arises. So, when the first two ewes abort, the next ewe has a stillborn lamb and the fourth ewe has a set of twins that are weak at birth and soon die, the experience can be very depressing and frustrating. These are all signs of an infectious abortion outbreak that should motivate you to 1) identify the cause(s) of abortion in your flock and 2) develop a plan to control or prevent abortions from occurring in the future.
