men on horses enforcing quarantine for hoof and mouth disease at the stockyards

Image of men on horses at the Union Stock Yards bound on the north by West 39th Street, on the east by South Halsted Street, south by 47th Street, and on the west by West Ashland Avenue, in the New City community area of Chicago, Illinois. A horse barn is visible in the background. The view is from an angle. Livestock at the stockyards were quarantined in an effort to prevent hoof and mouth disease, which affects mainly cloven-footed mammals and is a highly contagious viral disease, characterized by blisters on the animals' mouth and feet. The stockyards employees were ordered to take precautions by the United States Department of Agriculture.
