Abstract

The nature of the agent causing hairy shaker disease of lambs in New Zealand is uncertain. A report by Manktelow et al (1969) demonstrated the transmissibility of the disease, using homogenized tissue as the inolculum, and drew attention to its similarity on clinical and pathological grounds to the condition of Border disease found in the United Kingdom. Transmission of Border disease using homogenized tissues had been previously reported by Dickinson and Barlow (1967), Shaw et al (1967) and Barlow and Gardiner ( 1969).
