The director of agriculture may require, by order of subpoena, to be served on any company, firm, corporation, person, association, or copartnership in the same manner that a summons is served in a civil action at such time and place as he designates, the production of any books, accounts, papers, or records kept by it in any office or place within or without the state, or of verified copies in lieu thereof, if the director so orders, in order that an examination thereof may be made by him or under his direction. Each such company, firm, corporation, person, or co-partnership that fails or refuses to comply with such order or subpoena, shall, for each day it so fails or refuses, pay into the state treasury a sum of not less than fifty dollars nor more than five hundred dollars.
