That the significance of bovine tuberculosis is not fully appreciated by many is evidenced by their lack of interest in its eradication. Its increasing prevalence, however, not only among cattle, but also among hogs, is destined to command the attention of the most indifferent.
Tuberculosis can never be stamped out without, first, a thorough knowledge of the disease, and second, a willingness on the part of the owner to accept the known facts in reference to its suppression. Legislation can never accomplish the end in view without education and co-operation of the persons most vitally concerned—the live stock owners. The enforcement of any law depends largely upon the willingness of the people to be governed by such laws.
