Over a year went by, and a bab]

BRAND TUBERCULOUS CATTLE
New York Commissioner of Agricul
ture Orders Letter "T" Put on
By a recent order of the New York
commissioner of agriculture, ajl prac
ticing veterinarians in that state are
required to brand cattle found by
them to he affected with tuberculosis.
The order specifies that the brand
shall be the letter "T" not less than
2 or more than 3 inches high and on
the left jaw.
The new regulation, which became
effective in March, was issued by Com
missioner Charles S. Wilson under au
thority of the agricultural law. The
order applies to all hovine animals
within the limits of the state. Vet
erinary experts of the United States
department of agriculture consider it
will he of croat value to live-stock
breeders of New York and also an im
portant step for any state to take In
the progress of tuberculosis eradica
tion. Reactors are permanently mark
ed by the branding process and in
cases where they ure not slaughtered
the possibility of their being disposed
of or losing their identity is greatly
lessened, if not entirely eliminated.
RAISING SHEEP FOR MUTTON
There Are Many Areas, Especially In
Hilly Regions, Where Few Ani
mals Could Be Kept
Sheep are not very generally kept
on farms for supplying the home fam
ily with meat. There are many areas,
especially in hilly or mountainous re
gions, where nearly every farm could
keep a few mutton sheep to advan
tage, says the United States depart
ment of agriculture. Boys' and girls'
clubs in some parts of the country
have done much to foster home pro
duction of mutton.
"Sheep naturally graze over rather
wide areas and seek a variety of
plants. This habit partie ilarly adapts
them to being kept in large numbers
on lands of sparse vegetation or fur
nishing a variety of grasses or other
plants. They do better on short and
fine grasses than on coarse or high
feed. They will eat a good deal of
Sheep Do Best on Fine and Short
brush and, if confined to small areas,
will do a fair job at cleaning up land.
When used in this way, or on land
producing brush only, they can not be
expected to prove very satisfactory in
the production of good lambs or good
wool."-Formers' Bulletin 840.
HOW HOG MANGE ?S SPREAD
Disease ls Contracted More Rapidly
Among Animals of Low Vital
ity-Cure by Dipping.
Hog mange is spread mainly by di
rect bodily contact, according to in
vestigations recently conducted by the
United States department of agricul
ture. The disease is contracted most
rapidly among hogs of low vitality,
especially those kept- In small Inclos
ures. It spreads more slowly among
vigorous animals kept in pastures or
in clean, well-lighted roomy pens or
buildings. Failure by swine owners
to control hog mange results in heavy
losses from shrinkage as well as from
a high death rate. The department
states that the disease can be eradi
cated by four dippings in a lime-sul

tervals of 6 to 7 days between dip
