Protêata Against Dipping,
Editor Banner, Benton, La,
In a recent issue of the Banner
you advised the cattle raiser to begin
to dip their cattle as soon after
March 1st as possible, in order to
destroy *the ticks and keep them from
laying millions of eggs.
The ticks we. find on our cattle do
not lay eggs, and besides that, the
cattle tick we* have Is found on all
the wild game killed In the woods.
New. if dipping our cattle' would
-eradicate the tick, about May 1st
wouM certainly he early enough. to
begin to dip, as the seed tick does
npt begin to appear until about
June 1st.
- As to dipping your cattle, if you
had thirty or foxtv head of $ cattle
ranging In the woods and had to «rot
them ue and drive three to six miles
to a dipping vat every twentv-one
d*àys from ten to eléven times a year,
for two or three years, to be dinped
in a poison that might cut off the
milk flow about 60 per cent, and
probably would kill some and iniure
all. I do not think you would advise
other peonle to dip theirs.
Now, if the law makers of this
state have the right to force us to
dip our cattle without any regard to
our wishes or interests, it seems to
me that it would be better for them
to take all of our cattle that are in
the tick infested district and sell
them and take the money and pay
themselves for their trouble. Then,
after the ticks have disappeared, and
if there is anv money coming to us,
maybe they will buy us some blooded
cattle that will give us l^ts of milk
and butter and plenty of fine beef
without having to be fed.
Starvation causes my cattle to be
scrubs, and. kills more of them than
all other causes combined.
Yours trulv,
R. E. Young.
