The food poisoning hazards presented by domestic food animals and their meat remains an urgent problem in modern public health systems, as does the hygienic regulation of animal husbandry and meat production, and the trade in raw milk. The hygienic regulation of trade remains an issue in public health. This chapter tracks the discovery of animal-borne Salmonella transmission after 1880, the role played by serology in that discovery, and attempts to understand the economy of these organisms in nature. It shows how controlling these pathways of infection proved desperately difficult, in the face of intractable problems of trade interests, farm economies, slaughterhouse regulation, the controversy over the pasteurisation of milk, and the need to bring new technologies such as milk bottles within the fold of public health practice.

Keywords:   meat, milk, serology, economy in nature, trade interests, slaughterhouses, milk technologies
