Electricity is conveyed alonf> these wires and the stamp is applied to the cnrcase with the result that the brand is clearly and cleanly burned in. It is claimed that the brand cannot be obliterated except by cutting off the portion !of the carcase treated. Mr J. Andereon, Government inspector at the Canterbury Meat Company freezing works at Belfast, has tested this new method of branding and is satisfied with the results. Carcases branded by the process and frozen remained in the freezing chamber for three weeks and when taken out and thawed the brands showed no signs of obliteration. Mr "Roberts intends placing his invention before the Department of Agriculture.
