Silage eye

Silage eye, otherwise known as Bovine iritis, is caused by inflammation of the iris (part of the eye) and surrounding tissues, often referred to as uveitis. It is often associated with an infection, such as Listeria. It can affect any age and breed of cattle. Cattle feeding on silage or conserved forage may be particularly at risk.
