It could be something called 'soremouth', which sheep and goats can easily get. It is contagious, and can get uncomfortable, but I've never seen it lethal. Here's a link to more info about it. It says it's not treated by antibiotics, but I have seen it successfully treated with a topical tetracycline spray, or with the use of a barrier cream on the lips & nose of the lambs and udders of the ewes.

We have an almost opposite problem on the land I'm involved with where there's been a fair amount of anaerobic activity beneath the surface and a high water table. My sense is that the daikon would soak up a lot of water and could push deep into the soft soil, and then by leaving enough roots in the soil to rot, begin the process of transforming it into more useable land, as well as giving me a few arm's length roots to eat. Any thoughts?
