The implementation of the Brucellosis and Tuberculosis Eradication Campaign
has been one of the most significant animal health achievements in the history of
Australia and worldwide. The unprecedented technical and operational
complexity of the campaign presented an enormous challenge to cattle producers,
veterinarians, research scientists, field staff and administrators over the 25 years
of the project.
Beating the Odds in a Big Country captures the dynamism of the campaign
and records the very real contribution in cash and kind made by the many
producers whose herds were subject to eradication programs.
