DECLARED VOID IN COURT ORDER Writ Granted Mitchell Farmers by Judge Kepler OSAGB June that he state law requiring the testing if herds for bovine tuberculosis did not accomplish what it purported to do Judge M H Kepler Northwood n here today handed down an order restraining the state department of agriculture from test ng the herds of approximately 140 klltchell county farmers This order makes permanent a temporary writ of injunction grant ed the plaintiffs by Judge C H elley Charles Ciy in September 1926 By tha decision of Judge KepA er the state Jaw requiring the test ng of cattle for tubercular infection s thereby held unconstitutional Lastelv10 Days The case was set for trial in Feb ruary of 1928 and waa tried in dis rict court here the following June The trial lasted 10 days from June 12 to 22 Judge Kepler has had the case under advisement since that ime N The decision of Judge Kepler has jeen characterized as one of the jest written and most radical pres entations of a case ever handed down in district court in the state of Iowa Many statutes and rules now in force were affected by the decision which contains 36 pages Evidence presented during the trial purported to show that the methods of testing the cattle often causecl the milk afterward to be un fit to drink and sometimes caused abortion in herds tested Sold As Prime It wan testified that of approxi mately 154000 cattle condemned un der the statute by the agriculture department all but about 14000 were later sold as prime beef It was held that the public health was thus endangered if as the testing law assumes the bacilla are dangerous to human health It was further held that the law discriminated between owners of animals The act provides that the cattle tested and condemned must have been in the possession of the owner for at least six months in order that he may receive compen sation An important feature of the tria was an argument presented by the plaintiffs contending the expense of the prosecution of the law wag ut terly out of proportion to the amount of good it could possibly do even admitting that the testing da prevent some tubercular infection DisbaiTOent jPrpceedings to Be
