Description

The first of its kind in South Africa, the lab was established by the Natal Government in 1898 to control Rinderpest, a deadly cattle disease. Its first director was Col. Pitchford, who achieved enviable results in disease control. The lab became an adjunct to Onderstepoort. It is a national monument.
