Hereford Reporter (Newspaper) - March 2, 1903, Hereford, Texas
The Brand More dipping is in sight. Opinion is expressed that clean cattle will soon be allowed to Cross at any season. Colorado tex., sept. 30.-�?the announcement made to the effect that the state and Federal inspection season will begin oct. I this year is generally satisfactory to the cattlemen of West Texas. John Carlisle one of our leading ranch men who owns a Border pasture says this is one year that the live Stock sanitary Board has done the proper thing at the proper time and that the new regulations will be generally satisfactory to All fair minded ranch men. The Early season is going to give a wonderful impetus to the dipping business. That fact is already evident from the manner in which the situation is beginning to shape itself. There has been no cold weather so far this season to interfere with the development of the fever tick below the line and the presumption is that Southern cattle Are going to show up pretty badly infected. They can not Cross until they Are inspected and found clean and there is but one Way to clean them and that is to get rid of the ticks. Dipping seems to be the quickest method of retaining the desired result and there is going to be More dipping along the Texas line this season than was Ever seen in the state before. Last season the first of november was the opening Date for the passage of clean cattle one month later than the impending season. Inspectors say that last season the cattle were very Ticky from the fact that there had been no cold weather. The owners of such cattle had to clean them before they could come Over. In the majority of instances this was accomplished by greasing the animals with diluted Beaumont Oil. Some of them used Curry Combs and picked ticks by hand. In fact All sorts of expedients were adopted for the eradication of the ticks. The difficulty experienced in doing this will naturally influence the adoption of the most effectual methods that can be desired this season and As dipping is recognized As More or less of a Panacea by both state and Federal authorities the dip is going to be called very much into requisition. The expense of dipping is something of an item As the charge is an average of about 25c per head but the average ranch men prefer to pay the Money and have the work done believing it to be the quickest and surest Way of accomplishing the desired end. The Mere dipping of the cattle is not a guarantee however. That they can Cross the line. They will have to wait ten Days below the line after being dipped and then Cross if the e the a Etc will be accepted Nee that the cattle ire d As suffix Are not those w of events very closely with reference to the quarantine situation do not hesitate to express the opinion that the time is close at hand when clean cattle Are going to be permitted to Cross the line at any season of year.
