The development of permanent pasture in certain areas of the state has been accompanied by a somewhat obscure disease affecting the young stock grazing on pastures, “up to the hocks in feed, but starving to death.” Based on investigational work in England on a comparable condition there is a probability that the element molybdenum may be an important factor in causing the disease.
