Clostridial Diseases Farming Note

Clostridial bacteria are always in the environment but once triggered by a stress factor to release toxins, they can lead to disease which often proves fatal. Clostridial diseases, such as tetanus, malignant oedema, blackleg, black disease and botulism, are often an underdiagnosed cause of sudden death and have limited treatment options. 

This Farming Note covers:

  • Common causes
  • The main clostridial bacteria infections in cattle and their symptoms
  • Treatment and vaccination

Issued April 2011.
