Abstract

It was announced by the Commonwealth Health Department a few weeks ago that an embargo had been imposed upon the importation of cattle from the U.S.A. as a precaution against the introduction of bluetongue. This is an infectious disease of sheep which has been mainly confined to the African continent, and it has been responsible for heavy losses in the Union of South Africa, over a period of many years.
