This pamphlet contains the results of experiments in the Bureau of Animal Industry to determine the survival of bacteria after pasteurization by the methods usually employed, both the flash and the holding process. It contains interesting data as to the effectiveness of pasteurization of milk, and should be a valuable pamphlet for the information of health boards, and for distributers of milk who attempt to pasteurize their product.
