l . r . ' _ It] Z `Z _ _ The Prevention of Hog Cholera. 77 ; _ For afew days following treatment hogs should be fed sparingly on a simple laxative diet. They should be turned ,j?j;;_';j.l.ij.i_ f i out in a clean grass pasture, free from mud holes, or if the { weather is severe. they can be placed in freshly bedded, clean hog houses. " . . Failure to exercise the proper precautions of cleanliness in ` injecting the serum or turning the hogs in aiilthy place . after treatment, may result in abscesses. - , Hog cholera serum should be regarded as an agent to be L used only in emergency when hogs are infected or exposed to the disease. In an outbreak of cholera, vaccination of the Q' surrounding herds, supplemented by quarantine and disin- { ffection, will prevent spread of the disease. Q - _ Hog cholera serum is manufactured by the Experiment I Station at Lexington and by several commercial firms. In i ordering serum the number and weights of the hogs to be treated should be stated. Serum is distributed at one cent per cubic centimeter and is shipped by express C. 0. d.
