It is thoroughly washed and cleaned and ready for the chilling rooms, and there employees of the Government do the stamping or tagging, as the case may be. Q. Where is that done? A. On the beds where the cattle are killed. Q. In that killing room? A. Yes, sir. Q. Now explain to us all about the tagging and stamping. A.
