The epizootic Rinderpest disease affected the Polish territory from the years of 1920 - 1923. It was an extremely difficult experience for Polish farmers because of its significant damage to the cattle population. This epidemic produced a great challenge for doctors of veterinary medicine. The disease forced ministerial authorities and veterinarians to take effective measures to eliminate the plague. Preserved historical records leave no doubt that the fight against rinderpest required courageous decisions and sacrifices which were not always understood by farmers, who refrained from taking any action before finally destroying their animals infected with the disease. This article sheds light on the hitherto poorly known issues surrounding the fight against rinderpest in the Second Republic of Poland.
