Sec. 3. Before any concentrated commercial feeding stuff shall be sold or offered or exposed for sale in this state the person who shall cause it to be sold or offered or exposed for sale shall file with the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, on or before September 1, 1925, and annually thereafter, two certified copies of the statement prescribed in section two of this act, on forms supplied by the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, and shall pay a registration fee of fifteen dollars for each brand to be sold or offered or exposed for sale in this state.

The director may refuse registration of any feeding stuff, or may cancel any registration which shall have been made, if it shall appear or shall be found that all the provisions of this act have not been fulfilled, or if the feeding stuff shall bear any statement, design or device which shall be false or misleading as regard to materials of which it is composed. No feeding stuff on which registration shall have been refused or cancelled shall be permitted to be sold or offered or exposed for sale in this state.

Sec. 4.

Such label shall be signed by the station chemist or his deputy and one of such samples shall be retained by such chemist or his deputy and the other by the party whose stock shall have been sampled. Said station shall cause at least one sample of each brand of feeding stuff so collected to be analyzed annually by or under the direction of such chemist. Such analysis shall include a determination of crude fat, crude protein and crude fiber and any such other determination as may be advisable. Said station shall cause the analysis so made to be published in station bulletins, together with such additional information in relation to the character, composition and use thereof as may be of importance and shall issue the same annually or more frequently if advisable.

NURSERY CERTIFICATES. The original certificate issued by the State Entomologist under Chapter 265, Public Acts of 1925, is to be kept in the nurseryman's possession, and is not to be attached to any package of nursery stock. It applies to the whole nursery which has been inspected and to such purchased stock as has been received from other nurseries under the certificate of a state or government officer. If any stock is received from outside the state unaccompanied by such a certificate, the State Entomologist should be notified at once so that it may be inspected.

An exact transcript of the certificate including number and date may be printed on labels or tags for shipping and must be attached to each package sent out of the nursery. An additional statement, made by the owner, that the stock has been fumigated will be required in many states. The law now requires that the inspection certificate be attached to every package shipped to points both within the State of Connecticut and outside. Please see that a copy always accompanies each sale whether shipped by freight, express, mail, automobile or whether carried away by the purchaser.

After the date of expiration, which is a part of each certificate, the document becomes invalid and should not be attached to any box, bale or package. The nurseryman has no right to change the date or any other portion of the certificate.

The improper use or abuse of a certificate will not be tolerated, and the certificate may be revoked for cause.

Duplicate copies of certificates for filing in other states will be furnished on request of the nurseryman.


The original permit issued by the State Entomologist under Chapter 265, Public Acts of 1925, should be kept in the dealer's possession and is not to be attached to any package or shipment of nursery stock, though copies may be made for this purpose.
