The Akaroa Mail. TUESDAY, APRIL 13, 1915. DISEASED CATTLE AT SALE YARDS.

The urgent need of some expert Government inspection of cattle con gregated at aaleyards was most noticeable on Friday last when a beastwhich was apparently in the last Btages of Borne malignant disease was placed in a pen with some dozen young cattle and atore cows. Considering that there were nearly a thousand cattle at the sale, the danger owners run in allowing their etock to mix with such beasts is too great for fcbeir liking, and the bpast in question WBB the objecfc of eotuc very criticiflm. It apppars that it rm* hupn *he bfthit for of -uch bwmts ro bring them to tbe Dnvauchella yards for inspection by the Stock Dppfttf;ment, and in tho case of hek being ,ndemned tue owner gv.« b« : f torn p»nf>n*,\nn Rok pv'>n in -■-••■••/. . ,--»'.^

mix with the rust of tbe yarding, but a separate pen sbonld be provided isolated from tbe main yards for th e special purpose of inspection, and some arrangement should be made whereby the stock Department could be relied upon to inspect such beast? every month. The Saleyards Company should also protect their olients against any recurrence of what bap pened on Friday, and make provision mr an insppction by a Government V'-twinary Su gc>"n of ill sock yardf'd Th Bis noi; ib« first c*sh in which a bensfi suffering from a contageous disuse has been yarded, so that some inspection is urgently required. The beast yarded on Friday was apparently suffering from cancel - n - * mn sucb F ' ' 7, i'tIyJJBILUIUt C/UIU. ftOVtr ittilß. l/O,

serious disease, and it was in a dis graceful stag 9 of decomposition. Tbe beast was evidently meant for sale though it was not ofiered. We hope that some action will be immediately taken to prevent a recurrence of this sort of thing, as otherwise farmers will be chary about offering their cattle at a general saleyards. We are suro the Stock Department will fall in with any proposition the Sftleyards Company put to them, and it phould lie made public tbat und'-r the Stock Act a penalty is imposed upon a person even driving a beast suffering from a contageous disease along a public road, and a stock inspector has power under

the Act to declare a yard which has* occupied a diseased beast as an in fected area. The infectious and con tegaous diseases under the Act are as followe : — Aotinomy-cosia, anthrax, enncer, cntarrh, foot nrtrf month di? ease glanders, hog cholera, mange,

pleurc pneumonia, rabies, rinderpest, scab, groine fever, trichinosis, tuber cnlo.oig, variola, and any tumor or growth malignant or recurrent.
