History of Onderstepoort Biological Products

The outbreak of rinderpest in South Africa led in 1908 to the establishment of the Onderstepoort Veterinary Research Institute, which became a national centre for the investigation, diagnosis and prevention of the spread of animal diseases. It brought fame, a British knighthood and a nation’s lasting gratitude to its founder and pioneer in the early battles against animal disease, Sir Arnold Theiler.
