(Lock Photo, Kayenay Engraving) Livestock Precautions Are Listed Wisconsin State Director of Sanitation Gives His Views. In discussing the subject of buying disease-free livestock, Dr. W. Wisnicky, Wisconsin.state director of livestock sanitation, said (hat the observance of six precautions will save Cai-mers from making innumerable costly mistakes in their livestock purchases. He cited these precautions as follows: 1. Do not depend entirely upon your own powers of observation when purchasing livestock o£ any class to determine if it is free from disease. 2. Protect yourself by having the established and recognized tests applied for certain diseases. 3. Determine, if p o s s i b l e , whether the animals originate from herds or flocks free from disease. 4. When you bring the newly- purchased livestock onto your farm, be sure to isolate them for a period of three weeks. 5. Apply retests, such as the Bang or tuberculin test, if that is deemed necessary. G. Make sure after the isolation period that the animals are healthy before permitting them o mingle with other livestock on the farm. ' It would be best if cattle to be added to a clean herd were urchased from a herd in which ill o£ the animals have passed one or more completely negative Bang and tuberculin tests. Newly purchased .horses kept n isolation should not be permitted to use the same watering rough as oilier horses on (he farm, he warned. "If you buy hogs, try io purchase them from herds that are entirely disease-free and in first class, healthy condition," he stressed. Richardson to Give Broadcast Friday J. D.
