Description:This historic 1926 photograph depicted the interior of an unsanitary barn that might have typically been found in rural Minnesota. This study focused on the causes of mastitis in cows, which was a public health concern, due to the fact that mastitis can increase levels of harmful bacteria in milk supplies.
This was one of a series of instructional images used by the Minnesota Board of Health to train state public health workers, and the training was focused on the protection of Minnesota livestock, and animal husbandry.

Many people do not think about food safety until a food-related illness affects them or a family member. While the food supply in the United States in 2005 was deemed one of the safest in the world, CDC estimates that 76 million people get sick, more than 300,000 are hospitalized, and 5,000 Americans die each year from food-borne illness. Preventing food-borne illness and death remains a major public health challenge.
