Accidental poisoning of a group of yearling cattle by the organophosphate insecticide trichloronat
Peer reviewed

Abstract

Eight yearling cattle were accidentally poisoned with the agricultural organophosphate insecticide trichloronat. One animal showed signs of acute organophosphate poisoning and died. The others showed signs of chronic organophosphate poisoning (organophosphate-induced delayed neuropathy) after 2-3 weeks and one animal died from renal failure at 12 weeks. High levels of trichloronat were measured in fat samples at 6½ weeks. The remaining animals still showed signs of ataxia, possibly due to distal axonopathy, 1 year later but no trichloronat was detected in fat samples at this time.
