Iodine in the reclaimed upland soils of a farm in the Exmoor National Park, Devon, U.K. and its impact on livestock health.
Iodine is an essential micronutrient for animals and humans, yet its behaviour in the soil environment is not clearly understood.
This study centres on one farm in the Exmoor National Park, Southwest England, typical of many stock farms in North Devon where livestock grazing upland pastures suffer from iodine deficiency disorders.
This area is not characteristic of many other recognized areas of endemi iodine deficiency, in that it is :
proximal to the ocean ;
underlain by sandstones ;
not enriched in fluorine, calcium or arsenic ;
and has not been glacially scoured.
