‘At the present time, all available resources of the Department, through the Health of Animal Division, are being employed in the control and eradication of bovine tuberculosis throughout Canada; bovine brucellosis is also receiving serious attention, and it is expected we shall have a comprehensive programme of control and co-operation with the various Provinces, in operation in the near future.
