Cobalt deficiency, Sheep, Cattle

THE problem of supplying cobalt supplements to sheep and cattle running on cobalt deficient country has been greatly simplified by the cobalt "bullets" or pellets recently developed by officers of the C.S.I.R.O. The "bullets" consist of cobalt oxide combined with a special clay mixture by firing at a high temperature, and when lodged in the animals' digestive system they gradually release the small quantities of cobalt required to maintain good health.
