In January 1911, a disease called Rinderpest swept through Europe killing millions of cattle in just three months. This was devastating for the farming industry at the time as it not only weakened herds by culling them to meet demand but since they needed milk from their livestock to make cheese and butter there wasn’t any dairy product either.
Ultimately this led to shortages across Europe as people could no longer get enough food or clothing from what remained on farms after horses were also killed off due to lack of feed.
