The eradication or total elimination of brucellosis from a herd or flock, an area, or a country is a popular concept, but one which is often very difficult to achieve.
The goal of animal disease workers must be to reduce the incidence to the lowest possible level using the most practical and effective methods.
This apparent compromise with eradication is often the only logical philosophy which is applicable in many countries, especially among small ruminants with brucellosis.
Many factors will influence the selection of disease control method(s).
The identification (testing) and elimination (slaughter) of infected animals is often not possible.
Hygienic measures are difficult to teach and implement.
In most situations, vaccination is the only practical and effective method of control of animal brucellosis.
