THE BRATTLEBORO DAILY REFORMER: 'FRIDAY,' AUGUST 6M920.
5 1 52,616 VERMONT L CATTLE TESTED Believed State Leads Coun try In Eradication' iV, : Bovine Tuberculosis 4,317 WERE FOUND TO BE INFECTED On July 1 1,974 Herds Were Under State and Federal Supervision 265,269 Expended In Fighting Dis- ease During Last Fiscal Year. ' MONTPELIEK, Aug. C The tate of Vermont is believed to lead all other states in the country in the war against liovine tuberculosis, and the report of the commissioner of agriculture for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1920, which is now being compiled, gives pome interesting information regarding the progress which is being made. One thing is shown, and that is that Ver mont got the largest share of the fed eral aid funds of any state in the union because it was firsj; to take advantage of it and then made the best possible use of government aid. During the fiscal year, which ended June .".0, 52,016 head of cattle were tested ir, Vermont, The census taken in April of 1919 shows that there were r5."!V134 head of cattle in the state at that time, and the number is not thought to have changed to any ex tent. This would make a trifle more than It per cent of the total cattle in the state tested for tuberculosis dur ing the last vear. Of the number tested, 4,317 were found to be infected or 8.2 per cent. A summary of the money expended by the bureau of animal industries, by the state of Vermont and by the fed eral government shows a total of $2(55, 2(59, for the year ending June 30. This is more than double the amount which was spent in the year previous, when it. was $118.72.j. Vermont paid $S2, 917.13 in indemnities for cattle killed; $9,610.43 for the service of veterinarics employed in testing cattle and of in spectors who looked after the disin fecting of the barns, etc; and $."..rS,j. 64 in overhead expenses. In addition to this, iM16.0ofl.44 was received in sal vage, and this also went into indemni ties. The federal government paid a total of $99,204. 12',' which is more than was paid in anv other state in .the country. Of this amount $81,119.42 went for indemnities and $18,084.70 for overhead expenses, veterinaries and clerk hire. On July 1. the department had 1, 974 herds" under state and federal su pervision. This means that the owner had agreed to continue testing for tu berculosis every year, also, that the herds would bo kept under restric tions, to prevent the sprrad of tuber culosis to them. Of these 1.974 under supervision, 1.343 have passed the one year test without reactions and it is fair to presume that the indemnity will be decreased , on these herds by as large a margin as 90 per cent. On Julv 1, there were waiting to be tested 910 herds, which meant 11,923 cattle. The applications for the test are on file, but the work cannot be done owing to the fact that the appropria tions will not be sufficient, according to the estimates. If this could have been accomplished there is no doubt that Vermont would have" led all other states in the eradication of the dis It is estimated that $40,000 ad ditional will be needed to complete the Work. " At the present time the farmers of the ptate have come to appreciate the ben efits of having tuberculin-tested cattle, and it is fast becoming a difficult mat ter to sell cattle which do not come from such herds. During the last' year, pome bad herds were cleaned up. W.'E. Stellman's until their house was repaired and made ready for their occu pancy. - WILMINGTON. Program for Old Home Week.
