Switzerland. The official campaign against brucellosis of cattle and small ruminants

The campaign which began in 1954 and which was initially based on test and slaughter and vaccination and then only test and slaughter is described. It has reduced the prevalence from around 5% in cattle in 1954 to only 3 cases in cattle and one in sheep and goats between 1980 and 1983.
