Dr. Butler stated that because of the dangerous livestock South American co in a strategical posi restricted entry -fdr their ew has of : diseases existing in uatriès, they are not itifln to dem$md un flvestock products into this country. He pointed to a recent outbreak of the foot and mouth disease among California herds, introduced by infected meats from a South American country, as a very vivid object lesson of the danger that exists of bringing in decimating dis eases from foreign countries. Result of Outbreak "We are of the opinion," said he; "that any likelihood, for the present qjt. least, of lessening the restrictions gov erning the importation of meat and meat products, has been eliminated ns the result of the outbreak of foot and mouth disease in California." Referring to the number of., livestock animals in Montana, Dr. Butler said that while the Mg outfits' are' conspicu^ ous by their absente, that the greatly increased number of little outfits more than make up for the loss of the larger ones that flourished in the past. In explanation of his statement that Montana livestock is remarkably free from disease, Dr. Butler said that his department, in co-operation with the United States bureau of animal indus try, has tested all cattle-in 12 counties of the state and- in not a single county, did they find more than one-half of 1 per cent of the animals tuberculous:. "In one county we found one tuber culous animal and in another two," he said.
