Brucella ovis is a bacteria that causes infertility in rams. Testing for brucellosis infections involves a veterinarian collecting a blood sample from all rams in the flock as well as palpating testes for swelling or nodules – a possibly symptom of infection. In order to efficiently carry out blood testing and palpation we recommend to have rams yarded where they can be drafted if needed, and a secure race to run them through.
To prevent this disease from entering your flock we recommend that ram purchasers only buy in rams from Brucellosis accredited free flocks.
