A statistically designed study was conducted in the new lead producing region of southeastern Missouri to estimate the amount of soil, vegetation, meat and milk contamination by Cd, Cu, Pb and Zn. Dustfall, soil, root and vegetation tops were collected 4 times during a one year period at varying distances from the highway on a test farm exposed to lead production sources of heavy metal contamination and on a control farm outside the lead production area.
