the difference between tick-free terri

t 4000 head, while Tensas with 12000 head

Le their per head value, you can see what

Another phase of this tick question
was brought to my mind the past
month while attending the State
kn agent's meeting at Baton Rouge, when
Et Drs. Dalrymple and Flowers exhibited
ai letters from large stockmen from the
a North and West asking for informa
tion about tick free territory in the
d state, stating that they would like to
is locate in Louisiana but would not want
to g tonto tick ilfestcd ter r;tory.
As to the means of vettin2 rid of the

are switched from one rice field to an
other, the ticks be;ng killed by flooding

acted in some sections, either, but
rather a campaign of education, Show
the farmers and stockmen how much
tribute they are paying to the tick by
having to teed them by the millions
and they will soon become advocates of
the vat. Our operations so far have
been along this line in this parish and
the good work is spreading rapidly in
t, districts too where one would feel
aure of resentment.
Plaquemines parish recently appro.
priated $2000 for dipping vats and it
was a very wise move, but I am not go.
ing to ask for any appropriation, but
your active co-operation in spreading
the gospel of tick eradication.
The next step in livestock develop
ment will be the eradication of charbon
which is in my opinion easily possible.
Out of 2600 head of stock vaccinated
this season only live have died of char
bon. In one section near Lake Arthur
where about 500 head were vaccinated
only 4 died, while on three adjoining
plantations where no stock was treat
ed 52 head died of charbon. In this
connection I will say that heretofore
we have no doubt used a lot of poor
vaccine; doses that had deteriorated
from age, Under the new regulations
of the Livestock Sanitary Board no
vaccine over 3 months old will be al
lowed on sale. This I believe will in
Ssure the almost complete immunization
of all vaccinated stock.
I wish to report that this parish is
getting well along in the matter of
growing its own feed stuffs. The corn
acreage was very materially increased
this year and we are now preparing to
put in the biggest oat crop this section
e has ever seen. One car of Louisiana
g grown seed oats has already arrived
in Jennings, a car is being made up for
Elton and another car of similar seed
will be planted around Welsh, Fenton
n vicinity. Lake Arthur is also planting
ta good acreage in oats. I am advising
only the use of native rust proof seed
e as only with such seed can we expect a
,n crop of oats in this state because of
,d the tendency to rust in spring.
