" swab" or [cotton] ball


Explanation:
An " hisopo" is usually a device such as a swab or cotton ball. I'm outside the office w/o my dictionaries. This is usually the meaning of this word in medical Spanish, though.

Hyssop (sheep dip) / Newcastle disease?


Explanation:
Wish I had a wider context for your border disease...

I just checked on the disease listed in the 2nd answer, above, at:

http://www.inppaz.org.ar/MENUPAL/inppaz_oie/Normativas Paise...

The name of the disease (as it is given in the title) is "Newcastle disease". However, I can't find any site that confirms that this disease (a viral infection that affects poulty) also affects the fleece of sheep.

Using Google, I have found a number of **biblical** references to treating the fleece of sheep with **Hyssop*... (i.e., using hyssop as a sheep dip)

"swabs" is correct...


Explanation:
It's clear from the research bulletin published at the web site below that the name of the disease (written in English throughout the text) is indeed simply "Border disease," and that the "hisopos" are the swabs that were used to obtain cell samples from various parts of the sheep:

"Las muestras remitidas al laboratorio fueron órganos afectados, líquido articular, y/o hisopos con los que se habían descamado células rectales, cervicales, oculares, etc."

(Bulletin No. 36, "Resultados diagnosticos obtenidos mediante inmunodiagnostico en pequeños ruminantes") ["Diagnostic results obtained through immunodiagnostic procedures in small ruminants"]

Hope this helps!
