mass medication
(or immunization, or treatment, or prophylaxis, or testing, or screening) application of the procedure to all of the animals in the population, which may be as small as a herd or as large as a national herd. This sort of strategy has been used extensively and for many years in the control of diseases of animals, and has been the principal reason for the dramatic virtual eradication of the major plagues in many countries. The unintelligent extension of the strategy to the control of wastage caused by endemic disease has contributed most to the problem of residues of antibacterial drugs in the human food chain. See also mass medication.
