"The money loss in 1959 was
about $750,000," says Tom Zwei
gert He is director of the diag
nostic lab for the Veterinary Di
vision of the State Department
“In the first three months of
1960, losses ran a little higher
than in the same period last
year,” says Zweigert, "because
of low prices for hogs last fall.”
Swine producers could have
saved that three quarters of a
million dollars, Zweigert be
lieves. "It would have cost
about 36.000 to vaccinate proper

TO THE VOTERS OF
Please accept the expression of my gratitude
for the support rendered me in yonr County in
the reeent Primary for Lieutenant Governor of
To the limit of my ability, I have attempted to
present a positive program of industrial, farm
and educational progress to the people of North
Carolina, and I have been greatly heartened by
the support you saw fit to give me by your vote
in the Primary.
The office of Lieutenant Governor is one vest
ed with great constitutional power by the people,
and I know you will again give it your most seri
ous consideration in the event of a second
Primary. . „
Meanwhile, be assured of my deep affection for
the citizens of your County and the State of
North Carolina, and with grateful appreciation
for your support, I remain,

j ing—the most effective time,
Most of 'the losses were in
Eastern North Carolina, he says.
“We had quite a few deaths
around the Sanford - Durham
area,” he says. “There were a
few in the west; but most were
from Raleigh east.”
These loss figures are conser
vative, he says. “They’re based
on the reported losses, and many
more were not reorted.”
Animal disease experts of
USDA warn that the percentage
of pigs vaccinated is not ade
quate to prevent widespread
losses from an epidemic of hog
cholera. Seven million' more
head of pigs were farrowed in
the nation during 1959 Khan in
1958; but a million fewjer were

vaccinated than in 1958.
If this trend continues, says
USDA, only about a third tjf the
nation’s hogs will be protected
against hog Cholera. This is too
few to stop heavy losses if :the|
disease becomes prevalent.
Estimated national loss is S4O
million a year from hog Cholera.
Available Vaccines and vacci
nation procedures are effective,
but they should be used be
fore summer, when the incidence
of the disease is usually great
There is no cure or treatment
for the disease. Its control de
pends on vaccination.
Zweigert recalls that some
small farmers in Eastern North
Carolina lost as many as 300
pigs to cholera last year. The
producers who vaccinated at the
right time and followed good
management practices had no
losses, he says. /
"The disease is so easy to
spread,” he points out. “A man
whose hogs are stricken, per
haps without him knowing it,
may carry the germ to his
I neighbor’s herd. Or a producer
will buy infected hogs, again
without knowing it, and put
them with his healthy Ihogs.”
Farmers should isolate their
hogs for two to three weeks
after buying them, he says.
“But the main program is vac
cination,” he says. “Not by the
farmer, because the vaccine may
cause post-vaccine complications
from something else wrong with
the hogs, and most farmers don’t
recognize or know how to treat
the various hog diseases.”
Zweigert believes farmers
could save a great deal of money
on hogs by getting the vaccina
tion done by qualified vets.
“The average hog killed by
cholera costs the producer about
sls in money he can't earn.
That man that lost 300 hogs lost
about $4,500,” he says.
