On a farm visit in Co Kerry visited a Pedigree Holstein breeder who informed me that he had
6 calves born this year with blocked anal passages. The calves died within days after birth. I contacted a friend in the veterinary profession, who informed me that the incidence of the condition has increased with no explanation, as to the occurrence of the problem. At present their is a large post mortem study of calves being undertaken in Moorepark, Fermoy, co. Cork. A significant number have presented dead calf.
