Abstract

CROOKED CALF DISEASE has been a problem in the northeast mountain counties of California for many years. Calves are born with this malady and it is demonstrated by malformations of bones in the animal which have a severe to slight crippling effect. Calves may have twisted backs or necks, twisted or bowed legs, cleft palates or combinations of all of these effects.
