Sheep Medicine 8.jpg

In late summer a farmer complains that some ewes have lost considerable condition as a consequence of not grazing and are observed frequently kicking at their heads with their hindfeet, causing serious damage to the poll and ears. The affected ewes seem distressed, frequently running 10–15 m then stopping, only to start running away again.
