Epidemiologic analysis of reported scrapie in sheep in the United States: 1,117 cases (1947-1992)


, : Epidemiologic analysis of reported scrapie in sheep in the United States: 1,117 cases (1947-1992). Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association 212(5): 713-718

Records for scrapie-positive sheep flocks and sheep with clinical signs consistent with scrapie reported to the USDA from 1947 through 1992. Records from the United States Department of Agriculture scrapie control and eradication programme were abstracted, entered into a computer database and analysed. 1117 sheep from 657 flocks located in 39 states were scrapie-positive during the study period. There were no seasonal or spatial trends.
