Excerpt from Laboratory of the Inland Revenue Department, Ottawa, Canada: Bulletin No. 282; Cattle Medicines; Ottawa, March 13, 1914
The term Feeding Stuff is defined in the Act of 8-9 Edward VII as Any Article ofiered for sale for the feeding of domestic animals, and feeds claimed to possess medicinal as well as nutritive properties, etc. It would, appear that articles claiming to be Feeds must primarily possess nutritive properties. Although the fact that they have medicinal value as well as nutritive 'value may not prevent their. Classification as Feeds.
It must he confessed that some_degree of ambiguity attaches to the definition given in 'the Act. In many, perhaps in _most of the samples herein reported, _such nutritive value as may he possessed by the article. Is due to components like linseed meal, bran, screenings. Etc., employed rat-her as a diluent than as an. Essential part of the mixture. If purchased for the. Sake of its content. In nutritive matter. The price is out of all proportion to the value of the article; while if fed to stock for nutritive purposes only or chiefly, the drugs present would' prove harmful, or even fatal, in the large doses which 'such. Usage would necessitate.
