The source of infection was not established; but the reduced rainfall, associated with low, flat, flooded lands used for agriculture followed by animal grazing after harvest was probably related to the disease occurrence. Anthrax, Bacillus anthracis, infectious disease, disease of cattle. In Outbreak 7 the farmer reported that the disease was occurring since some months ago, with sporadic deaths, and that it affected also 15 sheep out of 1, and 4 horses out of In Outbreaks 7, 8 and 10 cattle were not vaccinated against anthrax.

In Australia the disease was observed on 83 farms in In one case of the acute form the farmer was bringing the affected live animal to the Diagnostic Laboratory, but the animal was dead on arrival at about Diagnosis can be reliably made with the polychromatic methylene blue staining of blood or exudates smears.

In Outbreak 7 cattle of different ages were affected. In this area there are about 2, cattle and 1, sheep.
