AGRICULTURE HVMBOLDT STANDARDS day. April 13. 1962, Pg. 24 Brucellosis ^ Dr. M. Lunstra of Eureka, dis- rict veterinarian bureau o[ ani mal health, California Dcparlmenl of Agriculture, urges all owners of calves between four and twelve months of age to make airange- ·nerits with their veterinarians to have their calves vaccinated to protect [hem from brucellosis, an infectious disease of cattle. Dr. Lunstra said that state law requires vaccination of all female calves of dairy breeds as part of the state and national program to control and eventually eradicate brucellosis in the United States. He explained, however, that calves of beef breeds must ·''so be vaccinated in order that the county in which the animals are located may retain its state- federal brucellosis certification. "The vaccination of calves against brucellosis is a service performed without cost to the call owner, except for any costs incidental to the handling of the calves," Dr. Lunstra explained. "Any veterinarian under contract to the California Department to perform vaccinations may be called by cattlemen to perform ,his service. "The department urges all cattle owners to keep their vaccination programs up to date and not :o permit their calves to exceed ihe 12 month age limit without jeing vaccinated. Failure to vaccinate calves may contribute to a general re-establishment of bru- cellosis in dairy and beef herds, and could result in economic losses due to restricted movement of dairy cattle, not only from one ranch to another, but also from Vegefofofe To Be Phi WASHINGTON (UPI) - The Agriculture Department's acreage- marketing guides for 1962 call for ,olal planted acreages of fresh summer vegetables and sweet potatoes equal to those of 1961 The department recommended an increase of 2 per cent in total acreage of cantaloupes and watermelons. Reductions of 3 pel- cent in total acreage for fall vegetables and 6 per cent in the acreage of vegetables for commercial processing were recommended. The guides are designed to assist growers in planning production. The department said that if production is in line with these guides for the coming season, anc if marketings follow a normal time pattern, supplies should be in balance with requirements. In the aggregate, the 19B2 guides for 16 fresh summer vegetables total 475,500 acres to be planted This is the same amount of acre age used in 1961. For 13 fall vegetables, the guides total 201,700 acres to be planted. In 1%1, com parable plantings were 270, 60C acres.. Melon acreage of 307.100 acre, was recommended for 1962. Ir 1961, the acreage was 361,000. The department said 198,40( acres of sweet potatoes-- the same ,, as last year-- would meet demand I The guides are a voluntary sen' ice to growers. It is not manda Be tacdnalinjf me county to another throughout he slate. "It is important that beet cat- le owners also maintain their jrucellosis vaccinations not only o protect their animals from the disease hut also to retain county certification and the freedom ol movement if allows." Dr. Lunstra explained that the 'ederal and state departments ol agriculture, through livestock disease control officials, hope to eradicate brucellosis in the nation ;y 197S, and to eradicate brucel- osis in California by the end of 1965. Brucellosis testing in its first phase has been completed in al counties of the state with the exception of Los : Angeles and Orange, and it is contemplated that the work in those counties can he accomplished this summer. Following the completion of first phase brucellosis testing, the California Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the U. S. Department of Agriculture, plans to inaugurate a program to eradicate Brucellosis in hogs. New regulations relating to the state swine brucellosis program have been prepared by the department and discussed at public hearings. They will b e c o m e effective throughout California soon, some in April, others in July. · · Dr. Lunstra said that he would be pleased to give further information concerning any phase of the state brucellosis program to cattle and hog producers. He can be reached at the Bureau of Animal Health, County Agricultural Building at 5630 Broadway, Eureka, California. , Sweef PC ifed Equal lory thai they be followed. The Crop Reporting Board said turkey breeding hens on farms Jan. 1 totaled 3,828,000 head, compared with 4,342.000 on Jan. 1, 1961. This is a decrease of 12 per cent from last year. The decrease in the number ol heavy breed hens was below a year earlier in all regions. Decreases were 13 per cent in the West North Central, 12 per cent in the South Centra], 11 per cent in the AVest, 8 per cent in the South Atlantic, 5 per cent in the North Atlantic, and 1 per cent in the East North Central regions. The 10 leading states, which ac counted for 7fi per cent of al heavy breed hens in the nation ranked in order of importance were California, Minnesota, Texas Iowa, Oregon, Wisconsin, Missou ri, Ohio, North Carolina, am Virginia.
