cows drink it than to let feeds do j

dairymen check water tank heat- |
ers now to be sure they're In good

good part of their feed as "fuel'1
to warm cold water. If water is
cold, cows don’t drink enough for

The announcement came today
from County Agent Riley Tarver
along with general information on
control, as preparations were mode
to emphasize the problem at the
annual farm clinic Feb. 3.
Long Use Needed
The county agent advised use of
pival or warfarin, which cause
hemorrhages in rats and mice,
but stressed that both must be
eaten every day for at least five
days or every other day for 10
days before becoming effective.
Prepared bait using the chemicals
is blended in a cereal mixture.
About five pounds of the bait is
needed for an average farm set of
buildings he said, with the bait
kept exposed for at least two weeks
and enough on hand to replenish

He warned that dogs and cats,
as well as other animals may be
affected by the poisons if allowed
to eat the bait daily for several
days, but added that one or two
small feedings are rarely harmful.
Chickens seems to be resistant
to both poisons, Tarver said, and
there is no positive proof that ani-
mals eating dead rats will be
poisoned. Cats have been killed by
eating too many rats, lie said, and
cats also may be killed by tape-
worm from eating rats.
Additional advice on bait sta-
tions may be obtained from the
county agent's office.
