Abstract

Five out of 60 purebred Suffolk lambs died when four to six weeks old with a nephrosis characterised by heavy deposits of crystals resembling calcium oxalate in the tubules. The source of oxalate was not clearly identified but may have resulted from oxalate-forming mould contamination of concentrates fed to both ewes and lambs.
