Health Update and News

Coxiellosis, also known as Q Fever, can wipe out an entire kidding season before the producer is able to figure out what is happening. Often the infected does show no symptoms: they don’t stop eating and they appear ok until they abort or until a day or two before they abort. Since Q Fever is highly contagious in the afterbirth and other bodily fluids an abortion storm can take place and the entire herd of does can be infected.
