Post Mortem report for September 2016

Monday, 3rd October 2016

Dear Mohair Producer

To keep you updated on the prevalent diseases investigated on Post mortem and farm visits over the last two weeks of September.

  1. Heartwater deaths in Baviaans area
  2. ‘Rooiderm’ in 5 weeks old kids in excellent condition on lucerne lands, cultured as Clostridium perfringens (likely Type A but awaiting Onderstepoort results)
  3. Isolated Clostridial related deaths in kid in excellent condition after creep feed introduction- still to be confirmed by pathology (suspected Clostridium perfringens type D).
  4. Abnormal numbers of kids (>10% of kids) dying at between 7 and 13 days after birth -awaiting sample analysis.

Roundworm counts have been relatively low due to dry veld conditions but even on lands the faecal egg counts have in most cases been low due to the cool temperatures.
