Livestock / Animal Husbandry
Dutch term or phrase: zwoegerziekte
"Zwoegerziekte wordt veroorzaakt door een virus met de vervelende eigenschap dat het zich jaren kan verbergen. Een besmet schaap zal het virus niet meer kwijtraken en dus ook niet genezen."

Any ideas or references. The Dutch pages on Google haven't delivered any illumination.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  MoiraB: "ovine progressive pneumonia" seems to be a much more common term. Also known as maedi-visna. See, for example, http://www.dlab.colostate.edu/webdocs/ext_vet/cleon11.html

  -> yes that must be it

neutral  Siobhan Schoonhoff-Reilly: With all due respect Jon, you have given a description of the virus. MoiraB has given the answer (translation, which is what Alexander is looking for). You should post your response as an answer, Moira.
