The report cited 'outbreaks of infectious diseases among livestock on several Charles City farm (chronic swine erysipelas), 8 Rockford farms (hog cholera), at Elma (X-disease in cattle) and on other Rockford farms (contagious ecthyma in sheep). Dr. J. W. Giffee, federal veterinarian on swine disease control in eastern Iowa, said in connection with the report that swine erysipelas has been more acute during the fall months of 1948 than in any previous period.
