Sheep Not Unduly Susceptible To
Disease-Most Abnormal Condi.
tions Due To Worms.
There is a popular belief that
sheep are subject to a number of dis
eases of rather diffcult identification.
This is not true, says 0. P. Williams,
sheep and goat specialist, Extension
Division, Louisiana State Universi;y.
Aside from occasional attacks of in
digestion brought about by sudden
changes to succulent forage, damage
done by stomach worms is practical
ly the only abnormal condition met
with in Louisiana that the farmer
could not have diagnosed by careful
Occasionally sheep have been neg
lected and half starved, and this coft.
dition is mistaken for disease. In
two or three parishes sheep have
sore feet, but this trouble may easily
be identified by the farmer if he will
examine the hoof, which will be
found with loose horn and sensitive
sole. Grub in the head is most com
mon; most sheep have them, like
cows have warbles. Neither grubs
in the head nor warbles in the back
kill the animals.
When sheep are in bad condition
and no exterial symptoms indicate
the cause of the trouble, then the
owner should by all means suspect
worms and take measures to expel
them from his sheep.
Every citisen of the State should
resolve that by the close of 1919 the
