Austrian Low Countries, Europe’s animal health pioneer, 1769-1776
|Author(s) :||F. Vallat|
Two previously unpublished manuscripts reveal how innovative the Austrian Low Countries were when they introduced an animal health policy to control rinderpest in 1769. The policy was novel in that it replaced the slaughter of individual sick animals with herd slaughter. Unfortunately, a number of neighbouring countries failed to emulate this sure-fire method of controlling rinderpest, among them France.
