The genus Brucella is comprised mostly of mammalian pathogens, which due to their low infectious does, aerosol transmission and treatment difficulty are classified as potential bioterrorism agents. Brucella ovis is responsible for the disease known as Contagious Epididymitis in rams. It causes an infection of the genital tract that may cause lesions which affects the quality of the semen and the fertility of the infected ram. The organism can enter the body through any mucous membrane. Brucella ovis can be eradicated by a test and cull procedure. The disease has never been recorded in the United Kingdom (March 2007), but has been reported from Australia, New Zealand, the United States of America, South Africa and parts of Europe. Prevalence is thought to be high in the Southern European states. Infected flocks may suffer considerable economic loss because of poor fertility. There are no records of human infection. This is the type strain (adapted from http://www.defra.gov.uk/animalh/diseases/notifiable/epididymitis/index.htm).
