When seventy-five per cent of the cattle owners in a county, township, municipality or other designated area have filed petitions and agreements with the department for the tuberculin testing of their cattle under the area or any other plan of testing approved by the department, the department shall cause a notice of such fact to be published in two newspapers of general circulation in the county or counties where the cattle are maintained and after a period of thirty days from the publication of the notice the state board of agriculture shall order placed under quarantine all cattle that have not been officially tuberculin tested or whose owners have not petitioned for an official tuberculin test and under such quarantine no cattle shall be sold, given away or otherwise removed from the premises except on written order issued by the department.
All owners of cattle quarantined under this section shall be allowed the same privilege of petitioning the department for the application of an official tuberculin test and removal of the quarantine as provided for in this article.
