To save the Cattle from Putrid Fever (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

To save the Cattle from Putrid Fever.

Cut a stick from an earl tree on Christmas night, put it in the manger, out of which the cattle feeds, and speak: I lay thee in the manger like Christ was laid into the manger at Bethlehem, and that my cattle becomes as little putrid as Christ's body ever became putrid. + + +

In the spring time, drive the cattle the first time with that stick used on Christmas night; after that, save the stick in the manger, but change it again every Christmas night for a new one.

The grimoire Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus lists this spell.
