It was blamed for being a vector for scrapie in meetings I was at

close proximity and eating each others placenta, as a reason for
infection. I don't know. Doctors differ, patients die.

IME most vets have sweet FA in the way of real experience of lambing
these days ;(

Two of the partners at our practice do but only because they have their own
sheep. The idea of calling a vet out to a sheep!
I bet they will do more ceasars than just difficult lambings because they
deal with ewes brought to them
