an outbreak of ringworm in karakul sheep caused by a physiological variant of trichophyton verrucosum outbreak of ringworm in karakul sheep occurred during 1973 among the flocks of at least 14 farmers in south west africa and the northern cape province. infections spread from one farm to another as a result of introducing infected stud rams. on one farm a few cattle, a goat and a horse developed lesions after being in contact with infected sheep. some of the attendants handling infected sheep also contracted the disease. strains recovered from infected animals resembled trichophyton verrucosu ...19751187096
the distribution of pasteurella haemolytica serotypes among cattle, sheep, and goats in south africa and their association with diseases.over an 8-year period (september 1986 to march 1994), a total of 497 organ specimens from sheep and goats and 96 from cattle, were received for their isolation of pasteurella haemolytica. they were collected in seven geographical areas in south africa (as it existed before the april 1994 elections). these areas include the eastern cape, transvaal (new name: gauteng), nambia, orange free state (new name: free state), natal (new name: kwazulu-natal), western cape and the northern cape. this invest ...19958668319
artificial transmission of bolo disease in woolled sheep and attempted characterisation of the causative unclassified corynebacterium sp.bacterial isolates (n = 38) previously cultured from sheep with bolo disease were compared bacteriologically with known corynebacterium spp. and actinomyces spp. the isolates did not conform to any previously described species but closely resembled c. pseudodiptheriticum and c. urealyticum. more comprehensive tests are needed to classify this corynebacterium sp. bacterial cultures of this unclassified corynebacterium sp. were used artificially to induce bolo disease in dohne merino sheep (n = 20 ...19958691411
dung beetle assemblage structure in tswalu kalahari reserve: responses to a mosaic of landscape types, vegetation communities, and dung types.tswalu kalahari reserve is a private game reserve covering 1,020 km(2) in the northern cape, south africa. it has been created from a number of reclaimed farms and restocked with large indigenous mammals. two surveys were conducted to inventory the dung beetle fauna (coleoptera: scarabaeidae: scarabaeinae) and determine their spatial patterns and food type associations. the spatial survey used pig dung-baited pitfall traps to examine dung beetle distribution across three main landscape types (pl ...201020550793
