and when it ruptures the skin breaks
off with a square edge just the aarae
aa a blister on the hand. In four or
five daya time tha whole herd would
have foot and mouth disease infec
tion. When animals get lama they
get lame In all foor feet aa a rule.
They stand humped and run a high
fever for about a week and the milk
