THE ROT IN SHEEP. [From the article on "Sheep,'' by. the late John Ellraan, Esq. in Baxter's Library of : Agricultural Knowledge. : J | A great difference of opinion pievuiis respecting the nature of this disease, but 1 am inclined to believe it: is* produced by the sheep feeding on wet pastures during the months of June, July, -August, September, and October; when, if one night's bard frost occurs, accompanied with snow, it des troys whatever causes the disease. The ravages made among sheep during the .last jtWo-.or.-ibree-yearsj.onght to be a^sufficient inducement for , every jflocktnaster. to en deavour to 'discover the cause of this disease. ? '.v- , It is more%ea9y to prevent rthan to cure, and with respect to tberot, 1 believe here is 110 remedy; it" may, however, be arrested in its progress forashort period,but it must ultimately destroy the animal. The. supposition-that a ewe will not take the rot while suckling her lamb, is altogether erroneous;.and I believe that any ewe s...
