Cattle Diseases in Australia

    Article metrics


    AFTER considerable delay, arrangements have now been completed by the Australian Council for Scientific and Industrial Research for the carrying out of research work into cattle diseases in northern Australia. The Empire Marketing Board is generously meeting half the cost, up to a maximum of £5000 per annum; the Queensland Government is providing £1000 annually and is making available its station at Townsville; the cattle industry of the State will provide £2000, to be raised by a compulsory annual levy of 18. on every hundred head of cattle other than dairy herds; the Queensland Council of Agriculture has offered £300, and it is hoped that the meat exporters will provide the balance. Dr. A. W. Turner will be in charge of the station, with Dr. John Legg as chief assistant. In pursuance of the policy of linking together work in different parts of the Empire by personal contact between investigators, Dr. Legg is at present in South Africa studying the problems and organisation of the Veterinary Research Institute at Onderstepoort.
