THE CATTLE TICK
SMALL INSECT CARRY'S TEXAS
Territory East of Mississippi Now In
fected.?Stringent Measures Must
Mr. W. W. Finley, president of
the Southern Railway, has recently
written the following letter and ad
dressed it to the Farmers of the
The developmeut of profitable cat
tle and dariy industries in some
localities in the Southeastern States
is being hampered by the presence
of the cattle tick, a small insect
which carries the germ of tht Texas
Fever, and is otherwise injurious to
cattle. The United States Agricul
tural Department, in co-operation
with the agricultural authorities of
the States, is carrying on a syste
matic campaign for the eradication
of the tick. The territory East of
the Mississippi River in which the
Insect is now present, and from
which cattle can be shipped only un
der stringent quarantine regulations,
embraces the entire States of Ala
bama and Florida; most of the
States of South Carolina, Georgia
and Mississippi; the Eastern counties
of North Carolina; a few of the
Southeastern counties of Virginia,
and a few of the Southern counties
of Tennessee. This area is being re
duoed from time to time as counties
or parts of counties are freed from
The injury done by this insect is
not limited to deaths among cattle
caused by the Texas Fever. Animals
which are infected with ticks as well
as those which contract the fever
and survive it are often stunted in
growth and do not reach the size
and weight they would otherwise at
tain. As a result of the irritation
and loss of blood occasioned by
great number of the tick, their pres
ence on beef-cattle lessens the rate
in putting on flesh, and on dairy
cattle decreases the amount of milk
produced. As cattle shipped from
the quarantined area must be handl
ed under restrictive regulations, and
can be sold only for immediate
slaughter, they command lower
prices in competitive mrakets than
cattle of the same grades shipped
from localities north c-f the quaran
tined line. The cattie within the
quarantined area also Buffers for the
reason that it is hazardous to under
take to improve the quality of cattle
by introducing fine breeding animals
from other sections be:ause such an
imals are liable to contract Texas
Fever and die unless protected by
inoculation. The annual loss occa
sioned by this insect is very large,
having been estimated in various
amounts, ranging from $40,000,000
to $100,000,000 a year for the en
tire quarantined area East and West
of the Mississippi.
As a result of prolonged Investi
gation and careful study ,by the ex
perts of the United States Agricul
tural Departmenc and of the States,
methods have be?n devised by which
the quarantined area can be entirely
freed from this injurious insect.
These methods include washing the
cattle or spraying them with solu
tions which kill the tick, or dipping
them in vats filled with the solution.
It is also possible to free a herd of
cattle from the insect by removing
them from one lot or field to another,
from time to time, in accordance
with a plan which has been mapped
out by the Agricultural Department.
For the reason thai the Insect may
he carried from a tick infested farm
that Is free from them by a single
stray animal, or In some other ac
cidental way, it is of relatively little
advantage to any farmer to extermi
nate the ticks from his herd and his
fields unless all of his neighbors do
likewise, -and unless rules regulat
ing cattle running at large are strict
ly enforced. The work of success
ful tick eradication, therefore, calls
for the harmonious co-operation of
the State, Federal, and local ?author
ities, and all individual farmers,
wherever it is bein:?. carried on. This
necessarily causes some temporary
inconvenience in localities where it
has been the practice to permit cat
tle to run at large, but there would
seem to be no question that the ul
timate results will more than com
pensate cattle owners for this incon
venience. Dr. A. D. Melvin, Chief
of the United States Burkau of An
imal Industry, in his annual report
to the Secretary of Agriculture in
1910, In referring to the benefits ob
tained in those localities where the
tick had been lexterminated, said:
"More cattle are being raised, and
a better grade of breeding stock la
being introduced; calves grow faster,
and cattle put on flosh more rapidly
during the gracing season and igo in
to the winter in better condition be- j
cause of the absence of the ticks;
they can be marketed without quar
antine restrictions, and higher
prices are being obtained; dairy cows
give a larger yield of milk, and
values of farm lands are Qnhanced.
Aside from its own observations, the
Bureau hes received from persons
in the released territory numerous
letters and eher expressions con
firmin? the foregoing facts and testi
fying to the great benefits following
the extermination of the ticks."
The management of tiie Southern
Railway Company, believing that the
extermination of the tick will lie
highly beneficial to all cattle raisers
within the quarantined area, is es
pecially anxious to encourage this
work in the territory traversed by
its lines. The United States Depart
ment of Agriculture has puhlished
Farmers' Rulletins giving complete
information as to the tick and as to
the methods of destroying it which
have proven most effectiv.".

Industry in the Department of Ag
