Prevent ox warble losses
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"Every farmer is familiar with the hard lumps or warbles containing grubs in the backs of cattle during the winter months. From the middle of December until the first of April, one-half to three-fourths of all beef cattle arriving at the slaughtering houses from Missouri and neighboring states have these grubs in their backs. During this same period an equally large proportion of the dairy cattle are similarly affected. The annual loss from this pest to the beef, dairy, and leather industries in the United States is from $50,000,000 to $100,000,000. With every effort now being made to increase the production of beef, dairy products, and leather, it behooves each and every beef cattle man and every dairyman in Missouri to reduce losses to a minimum."--Page 1.
