Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia (1981)
This film shows cattle suffering from Contagious Bovine Pleuropneumonia. The clinical symptoms and a postmortem examination reveal the characteristic features of the disease.
After its introduction into Australia in 1858, the disease spread to our major cattle areas and endangered overseas livestock markets. Close collaboration between State and Federal animal health authorities led to its successful eradication from Australia by 1973.
