"Mammite" in English is "mastitis," a term any breastfeeding mother knows and fears. In the Department of Agriculture, they were concerned with it as it relates to cattle: they made three different cattle mastitis-related covers in a twenty-year period, reusing the same concept but applying a slightly different aesthetic. This is my favourite of the three, reminiscent of El Lissitsky's 1919 suprematist masterpiece Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge. The other two are from 1970 and 1978
