Three-day stiff sickness or TDS, is a viral disease that is transmitted through biting insects. The symptoms begin suddenly and usually disappear after a while. Animals that have the disease develop a fever, become stiff and lame, lie down and appear unwilling to move. In most cases, they get well after a few days. Around 2-3% of animals may, however, die from the disease. TDS causes milk production to drop and the illness can affect the fertility of bulls.
