INFECTED HAY AND FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE.

A case has occurred in Germany, which illustrates the risk of foot-and mouth disease from confc vminated hay and shows for how long a period the diaease germ remains latent, ready when an opportunity arises-, to. cause mischief. At the end of last December the malady broke out on a farm, and as the district had been quite free from the disease and there had been no contact with any affected farm or district the origin could hot be traced.

The authorities ordered a strict investigation to 'be made, and it was found that the outbreak was due to tbe animals being fed with hay, which was gathered in the autumn of 1911 from afield where cattle suffering from the disease bad been grazed. The bay was stacked away behind the farmhouse and fed to tbe animals for the first time in December, 1913. — " N.Z. Stook and Station Gazette."
