Buying in infected sheep is the most common cause of introducing Enzootic Abortion of Ewes (EAE) into a flock. Our members flocks are monitored and tested under the Highlands and Islands Sheep Health Scheme to ensure they are free from EAE. For added assurance HISHA ewes, lambs and gimmers are also accompanied by a Health Status Report issue by SRUC Veterinary Services which officially confirms their EAE Accredited or Supervised status.

Up-to-date Heath Status Reports bearing the current year should accompany any HISHA EAE Accredited sheep you buy

Do you already have EAE in your flock?

If so do you realise that purchasing EAE Accredited replacements can also be of benefit to you.If you already have EAE in your flock purchasing EAE Accredited replacements and vaccinating them prior to mixing with your resident flock has the advantage of imparting immunity to the disease in these bought-in sheep. Vaccinating infected sheep is less effective and some sheep will still abort whilst others may still transmit infection.

If you have the disease and wish to bring it under control implementing a vaccination programme and buying-in only EAE Accredited replacements is the recommended way.
