Scope and Contents

(1) ; D.W.4638.- ; Hyperimmunising serum bullocks against rinderpest.  The animals are first immunised against the disease and are then made hyper-immune by the injection of a large quantity of virulent rinderpest blood.  Hence the serum is full of anti-bodies against the disease and the animals are bled regularly in order to produce anti-rinderpest serum which is then used to immunise the cattle of the country which are treated at district camps when two year old, and the treatment confers life long immunity. ; ISSUED BY THE WEST AFRICAN PHOTOGRAPHIC SERVICE, REGIONAL INFORMATION OFFICE, ACCRA, GOLD COAST, BRITISH WEST AFRICA.--Recto ; WEST AFRICAN PHOTOGRAPHIC SERVICE OF THE  REGIONAL INFORMATION OFFICE; P.O.
