tion, movement, or trailing or driving of cattle, sheep, other ruminants, and
swine from the area herein quarantined is prohibited.
Under authority conferred by section 2 of the act of Congress approved Feb-
ruary 2, 1903 (32 Stat. 791), shipments of dressed carcasses of calves, sheep,

nants, and all hay, straw, or similar fodder be disinfected prior to shipment
