Funds Asked For
Seek $30,000 Appropria-|
tion For Construction
The State Board of Agriculture,
meeting in Raleigh August 9 and 10,
voted to request the Advisory Budget
Commission and the General Assem
bly to authorize the establishment of
a swine diagnostic laboratory in East
ern North Carolina’s hog belt.
George Kittrell, of Corapeake, Gates!
county, submitted the proposal in be
half of a committee appointed at an
earlier board meeting. He said such
a laboratory was needed to protect
the East’s growing swine industry.
Last year, he added. North Carolina
produced over $60,000,000 worth of:
hogs and 82 per cent of this produc-'
tion was concentrated east of Raleigh.!
The board voted to request the Ad- j
visory Budget Commission to approve,
an apnropriation of $30,000 for con
struction and operation of the labora
tory during the 1955-57 biennium. Of!'
this amount approximately SIO,OOO
would be set aside for building and
equipping a suitable but simple lab
oratory. and SIO,OOO a year would be
provided for its operation. Employ-i
ment of a veterinarian and laboratory
technician is contemplated.
Kittrell pointed out that swine are
subject to a number of diseases which,
are often difficult to diagnose with
out laboratory facilities. It is impor
tant, he added, that farmers have re
liable diagnostic assistance to protect
the industry against spread of swine
infections and to protect themselves
against “quacks who are always sell
ing them some swine: medicine or vac
cine that they don’t need.”
