Mr. GARDINER:

I presume the hon. member has in mind the calf vaccine, which is made in the United States. It is produced in Canada now, although it was not made here originally. During the last year permission has been given to distribute it in Canada.

Mr. GARDINER:

The department does not recognize the use of any serum for older animals. There is a calf serum or vaccine used as a preventive. Then, the department does test cattle for Bang's disease. In other words, it checks them to find out whether they react, and if there is positive reaction their destruction is advised.

Mr. GARDINER:

The farm has not been sold; it has been rented to Mr. Friesian, who made an offer for it. The live stock has been transferred to other farms, and most of this stock is still in the province. I think by far the greater part was transferred to Melfort.

Mr. GARDINER:

As a result of the experiments which are being carried on we have two varieties, Pagoda and Cabot. They are both yellow beans that are produced, and they are being more widely distributed this year than ever before because we are desirous of producing soya beans to get a further supply of vegetable oils. We found that the seed supplied had been so completely taken up last spring, largely by people who were desirous of trying it out for themselves, that when we tried to get soya bean seed for sowing in connection with irrigation districts in western Canada we found it very difficult to obtain, and we could get only small quantities.
