Ovine Brucellosis

Ovine Brucellosis is a bacterial disease that affects all breeds of sheep and results in infertility in rams.

 

Infected rams become sub-fertile or sterile and the effect on flock fertility depends on the percentage of rams with the disease. Sometimes brucellosis can go undetected in a flock, particularly if there are other underlying fertility issues. Economic losses occur through reduced lambing percentages, extended lambing periods and the culling of rams to eradicate the disease.

 

See below three technical articles on Ovine Brucellosis sourced from the Kondinin Group, NSW DPI and Sheep Connect SA.
