South Wales butchers have decided "to take steps to secure warranties from vendors of cattle, sheep. and pigs that animals are free from disease when sold. This action has been taken in consequence of the serious loss sustained by batchers who, after killing animals purchased, had found them to be tuberculous or otherwise diseased, and therefore, unfit for food.
