Question: When should cattle bo
treated for lice?
Answer: Fall is the best seasom
of the year to treat cattle for lice,
says L. I. Case, extension animal
husbandman of N. C. State College,
The treatments are most effective
when the cattle are taken off the
grass, while the weather is still
fairly warm, and before the catUo
are placed in winter quarters. This
avoids getting the winter quarters
infested with the biting louse. At
least two treatments, 14 to-18 day
apart, should be made. The first
treatment will kill the grown lice.
and the second will eradicate the
lice that were unhatched at tho
time of the first treatment
