About this work
An amusing silent instructional film with a cartoon animated cow and theme tune about the cost of warbles to the farmer. There is a short drama sequence; farmer calls (light scratches) the vet who suggests the 'government' man is called in. The warble Fly affects milk production. How to squeeze the warbles out or apply a salve topically. The life cycle of the fly is describe and how they infest the cattle. This is illustrated via cartoons. The poor cow gets thinner and thinner; comical captions appear alongside the images. Warbles particularly affect hides; hides are handled and the holes the flies create counted. The film suggests that the way to tackle the problem is to get the community involved.
