In the meat industry, primary producers suffer annual losses to the value of thousands of pounds as a result of the condemnation of cattle and pig carcasses infected with measles, which renders them unfit for human consumption, and since man is the sole agent responsible for the spread of this disease, it becomes all the more necessary that the farmer be in possession of full information in regard to it. Gid has also spread considerably of late, in consequence of which several farmers have lost many sheep.
