The Ovine Johne's Disease is having the South African sheep farmers worried.

The illness is spread by bacteria and affects the digestive systems of sheep.

Leon de Beer from the National Wool Growers Association said they are not certain yet as to how widely spread is the disease in South Africa at the moment.

De Beer also said according to the regulation when a farm is diagnosed with this disease a farmer can sell these animals in auctions.

The Farmers are expected to hold a meeting next month in trying to find solutions to control.
