A drive has gotten under way in several districts of Germany to prevent “race defilement” among cattle, it was disclosed today in the Frankfurter Zeitung. The newspaper stated that in Hesse and Nassau official orders have been issued prohibiting the mating of bulls owned by “Aryans” with Jewish-owned cows.

The paper recounted that one farmer in Wiesbaden, prompted by necessity, wrote a letter to the Governor of the district asking an exception from the regulation.
