What you should know about the lumpy skin disease of cattle

What you should know about the lumpy skin disease of cattle | Animal Science | Scoop.it
James Odongo, a cattle farmer from Gulu, was worried when he saw wounds on the back of his heifer. The small wounds later caused the skin to start peeling off, leaving larger wounds on the cow’s body.
Logan Massingill's insight:

Lumpy skin disease (LSD) of cattle is a disease that affects the cows skin. The wounds start off small and soon start peeling off creating bigger and worse wounds along the cows skin. Signs of the disease include fever, raised firm and painful lumps on the skin, especially around the head, neck, genitals, limbs and tail of the animal. This disease can be transmitted through infected salvia in a common and used drinking palce or area.
