This is one of three books which constitute Title 7, Parts 1 to 209, revised
as of January 1, 1959. These three books replace the single volume entitled
“Title 7–Agriculture, Parts 1 to 209, Revised, 1953”, and become an
integral part of the Code of Federal Regulations. In consolidating the
material contained in the 1953 revision with subsequent changes and addi-
tions, there have been included all rules and regulations, general and per-
manent in nature, duly promulgated on or before December 31, 1958, and
effective as to facts arising on and after January 1, 1959. Current regula-
tory material appearing in the daily issues of the Federal Register follows
the numbering system used herein and serves as a daily supplement hereto.
This volume is provided with a pocket for the insertion of annual cumu-
lative supplements. It also contains a subject index and a list of sections
affected which provides Federal Register citations to all changes in the
material since January 1, 1949, including changes which are no longer in
This book is published pursuant to Part 2 of the regulations of the Admin-
istrative Committee of the Federal Register, approved by the President
October 11, 1948 (13 F. R. 5935; 1 CFR Part 2), under the authority con-
tained in section 11 (f) of the Federal Register Act as amended (67 Stat.
388; 44 U. S. C. 311 (f)). The contents of the Federal Register and of the
Code of Federal Regulations are by law prima facie evidence of the text of
the original documents and are required to be judicially noticed (49 Stat.
502, 67 Stat. 388; 44 U. S. C. 307, 311 (e)). The approved citation of
the Code is “CFR.” Thus the citation "7 CFR 51.1” refers to Section
51.1 of this Title.
A General Preface to the Code of Federal Regulations appears in the
volume containing Titles 1-3 and also in the General Index Volume.
