provided. 

4. Cattle from said area may be transported by rail or boat for 
immediate slaughter, and when so transported the following regula- 
tions must be observed : 

(a) When any cattle in course of transportation from said area 
are unloaded above-^north, east, or west of — this line to be fed or 
watered, or for other purposes, said cattle shall be placed in pens or 
yards set apart for infected cattle, and no other cattle shall be 
admitted thereto. 

(b) On unloading said cattle at their points of destination, chutes, 
alleyways, and pens, sufiiciently isolated, shall be set apart to receive 
them, and no other cattle shall be admitted to said chutes, pens, and 
alleyways ; and the regulations relating to the movement of cattle 
from said area, prescribed by the cattle sanitary officers of the State 
where unloaded, shall be carefully observed. The cars or boats that 



f 


3 


have carried said stock shall be cleansed and disinfected as soon as 
possible after unloading and before they are again used to transport, 
store, or shelter animals or merchandise. 

(c) All cars carrying cattle from said area shall bear on both sides 
printed placards, the letters of which shall be plain and not less than 
1^ inches in height, to be affixed by the railroad company hauling 
the same, stating that said cars contain Southern cattle ; and each 
of the waybills, conductor’s manifests, and bills of lading of said 
shipments by cars or boats shall have a note plainly written or 
stamped upon its face with a similar statement. Whenever any 
cattle have come from said area -and shall be reshipped from any 
point at which they have been unloaded to other points of destina- 
tion, the cars carrying said animals shall bear on both sides similar 
placards with like statements, and the waybills, conductor’s mani- 
fests, or bills of lading be so stamped. At whatever point these 
j ' cattle are unloaded they must be placed in separate pens, to which 
no other cattle shall be admitted. 

{d) No boat having on board cattle from said district shall receive 
on board cattle from outside of said district. Cattle from said dis- 
trict shall not be received on board when destined to points outside 
of said district where proper facilities have not been provided for 
transferring the said cattle from the landing to the stock yards and 
slaughterhouses without passing over public highways, unless per- 
mission for such passing is first obtained from the local authorities. 

(e) The cars and boats used to transport such animals, the chutes, 
alleyways, and pens used during transportation and at points of des- 
tination, shall be disinfected in the following manner : 

Remove all litter and manure. This litter and manure may be 
disinfected by mixing it with lime or saturating it with a 5 per cent 
solution of 1 00 per cent carbolic acid, or, if not disinfected, it may 
be stored where no cattle can come in contact with it during the 
period from February 1 to November 15 of each year. 

Wash the cars and the feeding and watering troughs with water 
until clean. 

Saturate the entire interior surface of the cars and the fencing, 
troughs, and chutes of the pens with a mixture made of pounds 
of lime and one-quarter pound of 100 per cent straw-colored carbolic 
acid to each gallon of water; or a solution made by dissolving 4 
ounces of chloride of lime to each gallon of water may be used ; or 
disinfect the cars with a jet of steam under a pressure of not less 
than 50 pounds to the square inch. 

5. Cattle from the Republic of Mexico may be admitted into the 
United States, after inspection according to law, as follows: 

Cattle free from splenetic, or Texas, fever, and from contact there- 
with during the six months preceding such inspection, and which 


4 


have been grazed in a locality free from infection of such fever, may 


be admitted into any part of the United States. If destined to points 


in the noninfected area, a special permit must be obtained from an 
inspector of the Bureau of Animal Industry, said permit being issued 


according to the regulations of said Bureau. The cattle for which 


said permit is issued must not be driven through the infected area, 
nor be unloaded in any part thereof except at such a point as may be 
duly designated by an order issued by this Department. If shipped 
in infected cars or unloaded in the infected area, except as above 
stated, they will be subject to the regulations concerning infectious 
cattle. 

6. Notice is hereby given that cattle infested with the Boophilus 
annulatus {B. bovis), or Southern cattle tick, disseminate the con- 
tagion of splenetic. Southern, or Texas fever; therefore cattle 
originating outside of the district described by this order or amend- 
ments thereof, and which are infested with the Boophilus annulatus 
ticks, shall be considered as infectious cattle and shall be subject to 
the rules and regulations governing the movement of Southern cattle. 

7. Stock-yard companies receiving cattle infested with said ticks, 
shall place such cattle in the pens set aside for the use of Southern 
cattle, and transportation companies are required to clean and disin- 
fect all cars and boats which have contained the same, according to 
the requirements of this Department. 

8. Inspectors are instructed to see that disinfection is properly 
done, and to report instances of improper disinfection. It is expected 
that transportation and stock-yard companies will promptly put into 
operation the above methods. 

All prior orders conflicting herewith are hereby revoked.

Office of the Secretary, 
Washington^ D. C., December 10^ 1900. 

To Managers and Agents of Railroads and transportation 

Companies of the United States, Stockmen, and others: 

In accordance with section 7 of the act of Congress approved May 
29, 1884, entitled “An act for the establishment of a Bureau of 
Animal Industry, to prevent the exportation of diseased cattle, and 
to provide means for the suppression and extirpation of pleuro- 
pneumonia and other contagious diseases among domestic animals,” 
and of the act of Congress approved May 25, 1900, making appro- 
priation for the Department of Agriculture for the fiscal year ending 
June 30, 1901, you are hereby notified that a contagious and infec- 
tious disease known as splenetic. Southern, or Texas, fever exists 
among cattle in the following described area: 

1. All that country lying south, or below, a line beginning at the 
northwest corner of the State of California ; thence east, south, and 
southeasterly along the boundary line of said State of California to

2. Whenever any State or Territory located above or below said 
quarantine line, as above designated, shall duly establish a different 
quarantine line, and obtain the necessary legislation to enforce said 
last-mentioned line strictly and completely within the boundaries of 
said State or Territory, and said last above-mentioned line and the 
measures taken to enforce it are satisfactory to the Secretary of 
Agriculture, he may, by a special order, temporarily adopt said 
State or Territorial line. 

Said adoption will apply only to that portion of said line specified, 
and may cease at any time the Secretary may deem it best for the 
interest involved, and in no instance shall said modification exist 
longer than the period specified in said special order; and at the 
expiration of such time, said quarantine line shall revert without 
further order to the line first above described. 

Whenever any State or Territory shall establish a quarantine line, 
for above purposes differently located from the above-described line, 
and shall obtain by legislation the necessary laws to enforce the same 
completely and strictly, and shall desire a modification of the Federal 
quarantine line to agree with such State or Territorial line, the 
proper authorities of such State or Territory shall forward to the 
Secretary of Agriculture a true map or description of such line and 
a copy of the laws for enforcement of same, duly authenticated and 
certified. 

3. From the first day of January, 1901, no cattle are to be trans- 
ported from said area south, or below, said Federal quarantine line 
above described to any portion of the United States above — north, 
east, or west of the above-described line, except as hereinafter pro- 
vided. 

4. Cattle from said area may be transported by rail or boat for 
immediate slaughter, and when so transported the following regula- 
tions must be observed : 

(a) When any cattle in course of transportation from said area 
are unloaded above — north, east, or west of — this line to be fed or 
watered, or for other purposes, said cattle shall be placed in pens or 
yards set apart for infected cattle, and no other cattle shall be 
admitted thereto. 

(b) On unloading said cattle at their points of destination, chutes, 
alleyways, and pens, sufficiently isolated, shall be set apart to receive 


3 



them, and no other cattle shall be admitted to said chutes, pens, and 
alleyways ; and the regulations relating to the movement of cattle 
from said area, prescribed by the cattle sanitary officers of the State 
where unloaded, shall be carefully observed. The cars or boats that 
have carried said stock shall be cleansed and disinfected as soon as 
possible after unloading and before they are again used to transport, 
store, or shelter animals or merchandise. 

(c) All cars carrying cattle from said area shall bear printed pla- 
cards, the letters of which shall be plain and not less than inches 
in height, to be affixed by the railroad company hauling the same, 
stating that said cars contain Southern cattle ; and each of the way- 
bills, conductor’s manifests, and bills of lading of said shipments by 
cars or boats shall have a note plainly written or stamped upon its 
face with a similar statement. Whenever any cattle have come 
from said area and shall be reshipped from any point at which they 
have been unloaded to other points of destination, the cars carrying- 
said animals shall bear similar placards with like statements, and 
the waybills, conductor’s manifests, or bills of lading, be so stamped. 
At whatever point these cattle are unloaded, they must be placed in 
separate pens to which no other cattle shall be admitted. 

{d) No boat having on board cattle from said district shall receive 
on board cattle from outside of said district. Cattle from said dis- 
trict shall not be received on board when destined to points outside 
of said district where proper facilities have not been provided for 
transferring the said cattle from the landing to the stock yards and 
slaughter houses without passing over public highways, unless per- 
mission for such passing is first obtained from the local authorities. 

(c) The cars and boats used to transport such animals, the chutes, 
alleyways, and pens used during transportation and at points of 
destination, shall be disinfected in the following manner : 

Remove all litter and manure. This litter and manure may be 
disinfected by mixing it with lime or saturating it with a 5 per cent 
solution of 100 per cent carbolic acid ; or, if not disinfected, it may 
be stored where no cattle can come in contact with it during the 
period from February 1 to November 15 of each year. 

Wash the cars and the feeding and watering troughs with water 
until clean. 

Saturate the entire interior surface of the cars and the fencing, 
troughs, and chutes of the pens with a mixture made of 1^ pounds 
of lime and one-quarter pound of 100 per cent straw-colored carbolic 
acid to each gallon of water; or a solution made by dissolving 4 
ounces of chloride of lime to each gallon of water may be used ; or 
disinfect the cars with a jet of steam under a pressure of not less 
than 50 pounds to the square inch. 


\

5. Cattle from the Republic of Mexico may be admitted into the 
United States, after inspection according to law, as follows : 

Cattle free from splenetic, or Texas, fever, and from contact there- 
with during the three months preceding such inspection, and which 
have been grazed in a locality free from infection of such fever, 
may be admitted into any part of the United States. If destined to 
points in the non-infected area, a special permit must be obtained 
from an inspector of the feureau of Animal Industry, said permit 
being issued according to the regulations of said Bureau ; the cattle 
for which said permit is issued must not be driven through the 
infected area, nor be unloaded in any part thereof except at such a 
point as may be duly designated by an order issued by this Depart- 
ment ; if shipped in infected cars, or unloaded in the infected area, 
except as above stated, they will be subject to the regulations con- 
cerning infectious cattle. 

6. Notice is hereby given that cattle infested with the Boophilus 
bovis, or Southern cattle tick, disseminate the contagion of splenetic. 
Southern, or Texas, fever ; therefore cattle originating outside of the 
district described by this order, or amendments thereof, and which 
are infested with the Boophilus hovis ticks, shall be considered as 
infectious cattle and shall be subject to the rules and regulations 
governing the movement of Southern cattle. 

7. Stock-yard companies receiving cattle infested with said ticks 
shall place such cattle in the pens set aside for the use of Southern 
cattle, and transportation companies are required to clean and dis- 
infect all cars and boats which have contained the same, according 
to the requirements of this Department. 

8. Inspectors are instructed to see that disinfection is properly 
done, and to report instances of improper disinfection. It is expected 
that transportation and stock-yard companies will promptly put into 
operation the above methods. 

All prior orders conflicting herewith are hereby revoked.
