The article discusses the results of a 2009 survey released by Janssen Animal Health, in which British farmers were asked about their opinions and experiences of coccidiosis on their farms. It notes that 45% of more than 700 farmers stated that bad weather is the most important predisposing factor for an outbreak of disease in lambs, and 23% noted that it is the most significant predisposing factor for an outbreak in calves. According to the survey, animals that are most likely to be affected by the disease are lambs aged between four and eight weeks.
