DAIRY CATTLE TEST
Dr. H. II. Green, Dequty State
Veterinarian, and County Agent
Morse comqleted testing for tu
berculosis on forty-three herds
of dairy cattle this week. Many
of these were family cows bo
that a total of only 174 animals
were tested. No re actors were
found among these cows. This
makes a total of 1015 cows tested
this year with onlytwore-acteis,
or less than 1-5 of one percent of
the cattle tested reacting. This
shows Morrow County is excep
tionally free from tuberculosis in
its dairy cattle, although if the
entire conty were tested the
percentage would .probably run
higher, inasmuch as many of the
herds tested this year were test
ed two years ago and something
like 17 re actors killtd. A com
parison of the re-action in pthet
sections shows that 617.610 cows
tested in the United States dur
ing March. 19,841 or more than
an average of .three per cent re
acted. In several states the
average runs over ten per cent
of re-actors, the State of Oregon
as a whole averages a rate of one
per cent re actors.
There are approximately 217.-
745,196,000 board feet ot saw
timber on the National Forests
of Oregon and Washington, ac
cording to estimates of the U. S.
Forest Service. The principal
species in this stand are Douglas
fir, western yellow pine, western
red cedar, and western Hemlock.
Forest .officers point out that
national forest timber is handled
as a crop, and provisions made
for growing a new crop when the
mature timber is harvested. Pre
vention of man-caused forest
fires is the most serious problem
in forest growing, it is said.

pulyin the United States has
