Local Action against a Cereal J Food Company. | An action of considerable interest to cattle and sheep breeders was heard (bsfore Judg9 Owen) at Cardiff County Court on Thursday. Uveco Cereals (Limited) claimed E28 4s, the price of food supplied to Mr Robert Templeton, Blackweir Farm, Cardiff, which money was paid inro Court, and Mr Templeton counter-claimed for £ o0, damage alleged to have been done his sheep by Uveca food.—The plaintiff stated that in February last he gave Uveca food to some twenty of his sheep. He had previously used the food for cattle and horses. On the morning after the use of the food he saw several of the sheep were ill, and at first suspected that mangolds were the cause, but next day the sheec would not go netr the trough containing the Uveco. Nine of the sheep died, and others were injuriously affected. — Mr Stewart, 5 veterinary surgeon, Canton, gave evidence of a post-mortem examination conducted by him. He expressed the opinion that death was due to stomach a bowel irritation, and he came to the conclusion that Uveco was the cause of that condition.- Ilr John Perry, F.R.C.V.S., called for the defence, said he made a post-mortem examina- tion of the sheep, and it was impossible to recognise Uveco in the contents of the stomachs.— The Judge said plaintiff's case was that there were certain qualities in Uveco against which he should have been warned.—Mr Bailhache said his client would have been quite content had he received before February the warning he had received since.—Mr Sankey called witnesses to say they were perfectly satisfied with the food, including Mr R. Strattou. Newport, aud Mr Riddler^ Hereford.—The Judge said it seemed that Uveco was a very good food if used in a proper way, but j Mr Templeton had not received a copy of the printed warning issued by the company, and was ] entitled to judgment for L31 10s.
