Livestock / Animal Husbandry
English term or phrase: Downer
I am translating a video on Animal Husbandry, specifically, Sheep Livestock SOPs Video. There are a few terms for which I need meanings in Bengali. Meanings should be in 1 or 2 words, not long since they can't be used in script.

I am requesting a short meaning in Bengali for downer.
