Preparing the Mixture

Preparing the Mixture.

Thoroughly mix five cwt. of flour of sulphur and three cwt. of slacked lime; empty it into 1,400 gallons of boiling water, which, keep on the boil, stirring well from the bottom for twenty minutes, when it is ready for use. Keep the dip up to a temperature of 115, or 120 if the sheep are very scabby, and let them remain for two minutes in it, during which time put their heads under twice. Repeat the operation a second time within fourteen days.
