Do you buy or sell restocker sheep?
OJD often spreads through trade of infected sheep.
If you buy in sheep, don’t buy OJD in with them.
If you do buy it in, you not only infect your own flock, you also put your neighbours and district at risk because the disease can cross fences.
You need a lot more than a casual assurance to protect your flock.
