Plan of Nation-Wide Crusade to Im
prove the Quality of Livestock
Through Use. of Good Purebred
Sires ,
(From the Farm Bureau News)
. Purpose of the Campaign
The purpose and goal in view is
the improvement of the principal
classes of domestic livestock in the
United States. Improvement has
Testing Cattle for Tuberculosis and
Cleaning Up Infected Herds
Havipg Effect.
(Prepared by the United States Department
i ot Agriculture.)
That testing cattle for tuberculosis
and the cleaning up .of Infected herds
been taking place for, many years, are having a permanent effect in re
but progress can.be hastened, it is duclng the extent of the disease Is
believed, by definite, systematic and
concerted action.
Means of Improvement
The value of livestock depends- on
good care, housing,, feeding and dis
ease control as well as on breeding.
Good breeding, however, determines
the fundamental capacity of an ani
mal to be- profitable to its owner.
Accordingly the replacement of scrub
sires by good purebreds is considered
a basis for all other improvement.
While the use of good females xis
likewise important, good sires bring
results more- quickly and economically
in most cases.
Need for Better Livestock
The underlying need for improve
ment of livestock in the United
States is to increase efficiency in the
production of meats and livestock
products, including dairy and poultry
commodities. Economical .production
shown conclusively by figures recently
ment of Agriculture from inspectors
In charge of the eradication work In
various parts of the country. The in
spectors were asked to supply figures
on the results of three or more tests
on badly diseased herds, those that
had not less than 10 per rout of re
actors on the first test. The first test
on more than 58,000 cattle In these
bad herds 'showed that 20 per cent
had tuberculosis. Another test six
months later im the same herds, from
which he reactors had been removed,
showed only 6.9 per cent of the dis
ease. By another six months the per
centage had gone down to 2.8. A
fourth test on more than . 25,000 of
these cattle showed only 1.8 per cent
of tuberculosis.
