NUMBER 35
NEW STATE LAW
WILL AID BANGS
DISEASE CONTROL
LAW
PROVIDES
FOR
COUNTY
BANG’S DISEASE INSPECTION.
Will Become Effective January 1,
1936; Unless Federal Program
Is Continued.
A law to aid in the eradication
and suppression of Bang’s disease
within the state, which is designed
to carry on the control work. If and
when the federal government ceases
its present testing and indemnity
operations, was passed by Oregon’s
recent legislative session. The new
law does not provide for state in­
demnities, but it does require the
compulsory testing for Bang’s di­
sease in all counties where the dairy
animals exceed the number of other
cattle kept on farms.
Any county may avail itself of the
provisions of the law on the petition
of owners of at least 60 per cent of
all cattle in the county. On the oth­
er hand, the application of the law
may be discontinued at the request
of 60 per cent of the owners of cat­
tle in that county. The law is to
take effect January 1, 1936, al­
though if the federal program is con­
tinued through 1936, the state act
will become operative January 1,
1937.
The law provides for a qualified
Bang's disease Inspector in each
county, to be appointed by the coun­
ty court, who must test all cattle
periodically. The laboratory work
is to be carried on at Oregon State
college.
Each animal found to be free from
the disease is marked with a metal
ear tag or legible tattoo mark. Those
found to react to the Bang’s disease
test are both earmarked and branded
with a letter "B” on the left hip. No
dairy animal over six months of age
may be sold unless it comes from a
disease-tested and free herd or has
been itself tested and proved free
within 60 days prior to the time of
disposal.
If the federal indemnity plan.is
dropped, the owner of reacting cat
tie may retain the animals so long
as he will follow rules prescribed by
the state department of agriculture
for building up a disease-free herd
Meanwhile, ho will not be permitted
to allow such reacting animals with­
in six feet of any neighboring catti
owners’ property line, whore disease
free or susceptible cattle are kept.
Sign-Up Deadline Extended.
A short time ago it was announced
that no Government Bang's disease
tooting agreements could bo signed
after April ,16th. Since the above
information on the state compulsory
test law has been released, it was
decided that farmers would bo given
another opportunity to get their
cows tested under the government
contract and receive indemnity for
reactors. As was stated above, no
indemnities will be paid when the
state law becomes effective.
Testing in West Umatilla county
will be resumed about the latter part
of May. Dr. R. A. Reeve, who was
doing the work here is now working
in the Pendleton area.
About 3500 cows have been test­
ed to date. Among the larger herds
that have been tested are those of
Alpha Chrlstley, A. E. McFarland,
Joe Kremer, Charles Lynch, W. C.
Kik, J. W. Foley, R. G. Saylor, Haw­
ley Bean, Harry Owens, and many
others that could be mentioned.
Any farmers who wish to sign the
government agreement, should see
W. A. Sawyer, assistant county
agent, as soon as possible.
