THE STAYTON MAIL
H as the Largest Circulation of A n y Paper in the Santiam Valley
A word of caution and advice
to funner« who nro pr paring
dressed meats to be sold in Port
land und other cities within the
state, will be o f great benefit at
A great amount of this meat
is condemned and ordered des
troyed because of reaching the
market in such condition that it
’ s unfit for food. This is not
only a direct loss to the farmer
who ships it but in such times
when we are exercising every
effort in the line of food conser
vation, it is a loss to the consum
ing public, and we feel a great
deal o f such loss could be avoided
if farmers and butchers would
properly prepare their meats
taking necessary precaution to
see that it reaches the market in
the liest possible condition.
Dr. E. E. Chase, Chief Meat
Inspector of the City Health De
partment of Portland, informs
me that during t h e last 16
m onths, there has been con
demned 18,426 lbs., of meat that
was kilied and dressed by far
mers, and this condemnation has
not been on account o f a diseased
condition of the meat but simply
on account of what is termed as
"Spoiled M eat”
We feel that
if farmers and butchers will ob
serve the following requirements
much of this loss can be elimin
lst-The carcasses o f veal and
hogs must be entirely free from
animal heat before being offered
to the transportation company
2nd All carcasses of v e a l
should have two sticks, one in
the thoracic cavity, the other in
nltdominal cavity, so as to spread
the carcass and hold it apart.
In hogs weighing over 200 lbs.,
it would be well to have them
split through the hips and should
ers, as hogs sour very quickly
during the hot weather. Thor
oughly wash the inside of the
veal with hot water and wipe
with a clean cloth until all slime
and dampness is thoroughly re
moved; the sprinkling of cayenne
pepper on the inside o f the car-
casB tends to prevent the work
o f flies.
All carcasses, except veal must
lx? wrapped in a clean cloth be
fore being offered for shipment.
