There are increasing signs that infections causing abortion in sheep are an important source of lambing losses in Western Australia.
The organisms responsible may cause losses at any time from the 60th day of pregnancy to a week after birth.
This article discusses the symptoms, effects and control of infectious abortion and associated losses, and outlines a research project started this year to investigate them.
