Lassen County Short of Hay
April 13, 1952
Due to the acute shortage of hay in Lassen County, some ranchers are reportedly contemplating the purchase of hay outside the county, or from other areas of the county.
Lassen County agricultural commissioner, Ernest E. Fix, points out that agricultural products coming from outside the county, or from other areas within the county must be held for inspection, so that this office can determine if the hay is contaminated with primary or secondary noxious weeds or seeds.
The agricultural commissioner suggests that it would be the best to contact his office first and get information as to what ranchers should look for in purchasing hay.
Any hay being brought into the county or from other areas within the county containing primary or secondary noxious weeds ort seeds shall either be returned to its origin, or destroyed, Fix said.
