The story of the Animal Health Research Laboratory must be seen against a background of rapid domestic, global and techno-scientific change. During its sixty year history, it made a crucial contribution to improving the standard of Australian livestock, furthered the cause of animal health generally and helped to promote the cause of science to the wider community.
For these reasons and many more, it deserves to be recognised and remembered; this history is an attempt to do just that.
“... should not be missed by those interested in animal welfare and health, infectious diseases, and in the history of veterinary science in Australia.”
Margaret Sabine (The Veterinarian, Oct 2001)
“The book is a valuable addition to the writings on Australian veterinary history.”
PJ Mylrea (Australian Veterinary Journal v.79 no.10 Oct 2001)
