Amorimiaseptentrionalis contains sodium monofluoroactetate and can cause acute heart failure in ruminants when ingested in toxic doses. In this study we demonstrate that resistance to poisoning by A. septentrionalis can be improved in goats by the repeated administration of non-toxic doses of A. septentrionalis. We also show that increased resistance to poisoning by A. septentrionalis can also be achieved by the transfaunation of ruminal content from goats previously conditioned to beresistant to naïve goats.
