-20- BANGS DISEASE ERADICATION Forty percent of the herds in Grant County have been tested for Bqngs Disease under the Federrl Indemnity System. This work is promoted thru this office to a large extent. Applicrtions are received snd submitted to the State Department of Agriculture. All county publicity is handled by the Agent. B-ung's problems were discussed a1t many of the matings held throughout the year. At the present time no Federal Indemnity is available. As soon as this is again availuble preliminary ,ork on an area test will begin. The first steps will be to get an accurate idea of the attitude of tht farmers. If, after educational work is completed, seventy-five per cent of the f'rme-rs want the test, petitions for it will be started. The Agent flels that unless an area test is adopted little lasting good will be accomplished.
