Ark., Sept. 2, — With hundreds of lairs now tinder way in the United States, farmers were advised yesterday lo make sure that animal* do not bring disease hazards home with their blue ribbons. "No matter what stringent sanitary measures have been taken at lairs, any animal .shown where large groups of other animaJ.s have been assembled should be handled as if it has been exjKxsed to infection," warns a bulletin from the American Foundation for Animal Health. A minimum quarantine period of 30 days was recommended for all animals after fair exhibition, before letting them join the home herds. The Foundation pointed out that while an animal may appear perfectly healthy, it can be harboring deadly disease germs contracted from an e finally heal thy-look ing animal a i a fair, a .show, or livestock .sale. recornmetided was a checkup by a veterinarian ol all livestock returning from fairs. Such a procedure, the Foundation .said, has a two-fold purpose if tiic aniinal Ls infected. First, .special precautions can be taken to see that the disease does not spread to other animals in the herd. Second, treatment to save the animal's value can be instituted promptly. "Such vigilance," the Foundation .said, "insures that a win in the show riii? will not be followed by a loss on the farm," James Moore Hox 2:n l>honc ;16 .Manihi, Ark. Cotton.
