Bureau of Animal Industry through the veterinary inspector stationed
at that establishment.

slaughter, when-not accompanied by certificates as indicated in para-
graph (b), may be brought into the District of Columbia as provided
in paragraph (a), but said cattle must be accompanied by affidavits by
the breeder or feeder and by the owner or shipper; said affidavits to
state that tuberculosis has not been known to exist on the premises,
during the six months immediately preceding the offer for entry, upon
which said animals have been kept.

Columbia shall be inspected and tuberculin tested by a veterinary
inspector of the Bureau of Animal Industry or of the Health Depart-
ment of the District of Columbia. Cattle under 6 months old shall,

tuberculin tested, said inspection and tuberculin testing to be repeated
annually, or at such times as the Chief of the Bureau of Animal Industry
or the Health Officer of the District of Columbia may direct. All such
cattle shall be officially tagged (7. S., B. A. I.," with a serial number,
