Abstract :

Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD) is a viral infection that primarily affects cattle, causing cutaneous nodules and other symptoms. LSD is found in Africa and other regions like the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and Asia. It drives economic effects by reducing productivity and affecting livestock's milk production, weight and fertility. Vaccination, insect control, biosecurity, isolation, quarantine and surveillance are important for preventing and containing the disease. Reliable information is crucial for effective management. Effecting these measures can reduce LSD spread protect domestic animals and improve the agricultural sector's finances.
