Notes

The entrance to the dipping vats was constructed of wood and sloped so that animals were herded in and then slid down into the vat of dipping solution.

Although J. D. Mitchell is most remembered as a naturalist, he contributed to many fields. He combined his knowledge of ranching and insects to search for solutions to problems posed by insect pests, including eradication of the cattle tick, a carrier of Texas fever.
