Economic impact of facial eczema of sheep in Basque country: preliminary study



Economic impact of facial eczema of sheep in Basque country: preliminary study



Revue de Medecine Veterinaire 139(5): 489-492



In April 1986, a questionnaire was used to collect data over the period 1983-85 on the percentage of milking animals, milk production, fertility, numbers of lambs born, and culling rate in 30 facial eczema flocks totalling 4480 animals, free from other major diseases, and 12 control flocks. The facial eczema flocks gave significantly poorer results for all five criteria. Annual lamb production was estimated to be 12% lower and milk production 11% lower in the facial eczema flocks.
