Production of cobalt pellets

A cure for coast disease, a wasting disease of sheep, was discovered in the late 1930s by Hedley Marston and his team at the Division of Animal Nutrition. The disease had baffled veterinarians since the early days of settlement and was common along the coast from Victoria to SA. Scientists identified the cause of the disease as cobalt deficiency. Sheep were treated with cobalt pellets given orally by means of an applicator.
