Methoxychlor in amounts of less than 0,1 p.p.m. was found in the milk of herds dusted for horn fly (Haernatotia irritans (L.)) control with approximately 10 g. per cow of 50% methoxychlor wettable powder. The contamination was presumably of extraneous origin rather than by excretion in the milk. Under practical conditions, herds are dusted at approximately 3-l\'eek inter- vals so extraneous contamination would he expected to occur simultaneously on only a few farms in all area. Upon dilution with other milk from the area, the slight contamination occurring on individual farms at any given time should result in methoxychlor residues of less than 0.01 p.p.m, in commercial milk.
