William Witney - Down Dakota Way (1949)
Plot: Rancher H. T. McKenzie is informed by veterinarian George Fredericks that his cattle are carriers of the hoof-and-mouth disease and must be destroyed. McKenzie hires Steve Paxton to kill the vet and steal his report. Roy Rogers and the Riders of the Purple Sage (Foy Willing, Darol Rice, George Bamby and Al Sloey) on their way to the Cheyenne Rodeo, detour through Sun Rock so that Roy can visit his old schoolteacher Dolly Paxton, Steve's stepmother. Roy becomes involved in the chase of Steve by Sheriff Holbrook. Ruth Shaw tells Roy that the school board has fired Dolly because of Steve, and that she has turned into a crushed and bitter woman still willing to defend her stepson. Roy discovers a McKenzie calf with symptoms of hoof-and-mouth which puts him on the trail of McKenzie.
A crooked businessman is trying to sell cattle infected with deadly hoof-and-mouth disease. He has the local veterinarian murdered to cover up his plans.
Some of McKenzie's cattle are infected with Hoof and Mouth disease. Steve Paxton kills the Vet and then demands money from McKenzie for the incriminating report. When Steve's mother is arrested for aiding his escape, he uses the money for her bail. Roy finds a sick cow and Steve's mother diagnoses the disease. Roy must now stop McKenzies cows before they infect all the other herds
