CHESHIRE DAIRY FARMERS. ADMISSION OF LIVE STOCK. A counoil meeting of this association was held at the Blossoms Hotel, Chester, on Saturday. Mr. G. Barbour occupied the chair, and the follow- ing members were present:—Messrs. Rowe Morris, R. Mullock, R. Bourne, Jas. Blake, P. Dutton, C. Bate, J. Jackson, J. Minshull J. Jones, T. Prince, R. D. Walley, H. S. Walley, and R. Challinor (secretary). Discussing the result of the annual show held at Chester and Nantwich, the members generally spoke in words of commendation of the satisfactory way in which the stewards had carried out the several duties involved. Mr. Rowe Morris raised the question of the desirability or otherwise of ad- mission of live stock into this country, stating that the matter had come under the notice of various corporations, a number of which had passed resolutions in favour of it. To what ex- tent corporations would benefit by the opening of their ports for admission of live stock he (Mr. Morris) did not know, but in his opinion the pass- ing of an Act to allow this admissioij would seriously affect the interests of the dairy farmer. —Mr. Richard Mullock stated that the matter was serious. He did not look at it on commercial lines, viz., in the light of raising or lowering the price of cattle but rather at the certainty of in- creasing the risk of introducing and spreading disease. He and numerous others had in their minds vivid recollections of the terrible havoc wrought in this country in 1866 by the rinderpest, and he thought that an excuse for offering a strong protest against any action that may be taken which would increase the risk of importing disease into the country.—Messrs. R. D. Walley. J. Minshull, T. Prince, C. Bate, and others spoke in a similar manner, whereupon it was unani- mously resolved that the whole matter be dis- cussed at the annual meeting of the association to be held in February.
