Abstract

Tuberculosis is a disease of considerable importance, both from a public health -*- point of view and because of the economic loss to the State occasioned by the destruction of affected carcases of cattle and pigs condemned at slaughter houses. It is widespread throughout Australia, but since 1938, when energetic steps were commenced to eradicate the disease from the metropolitan dairy herds of Sydney, considerable progress has been made in its eradication in the milk supply herds of all States.
