Hog Cholera Cases Reported:

Hog cholera is perhaps still the
number one killer of hogs.
Why? We have vaccines avail
able to control this disease. I
am afraid that many hog grow
ers hope to get by without vac
| cination and save the cost. Yet,
when it strikes, it often causes
losses which cost more than
many years’ vaccination.
Perhaps best is to have a vet
erinarian do the vaccinating.
Next best is to get a qualified
vaccinator do the job. You can
do your own vaccinating if you
will observe and practice neces
Vaccines must be fresh and
potent. They must be refrigerat
ed and handled properly. Only
purchase vaccines from a relia
ble source. Disinfect instru
ments and keep them clean.
Disinfect the hogs where you
make your injections. Vaccinate
pigs and hogs while they are
thrifty, don’t wait until they are
Control of cholera will be one
part of the disease control dis

Come and profit by it.

The Acelets could not find the
