Failure to vaccinate causes Spread of hog cholera in Iowa Hog cholera continued to spread in Iowa during May, according to Iowa State Department of Agriculture figures announced today. Thirty-nine herds were quarantined during the month, while only five were released from quarantine after final clean-up infection. The May report showed two more herds were quarantined in May thnn had been quarantined in the previous month. The May total was .77 herds. The May quarantines involved 5,837 pigs. Of these 5,454 were native Iowa pigs and 383 were shipped in from another state. Iowa district veterinarian had completed investigations of 20 of the 39 hords quarantined during May. They found that nine of the cholera-infected herds had been vaccinated. This large number of vaccination "breaks" points up a problem which seems to develop year during spring and summer on Iowa swine farms, according to Extension Veterinarian Maynard Spear of Iowa State university. These "breaks" he said, point up the importance of proper vaccination of pigs at the recommended times. Dr. M. E. Pomeroy, chief of the division of animal industry in the state department of agriculture, pointed out that three of the herds which contacted cholera in May, despite "vaccination," had been vaccinated with vaccine alone. The recommended procedure is vaccination with anti-cholera serum and modified live virus. Spear explained that the anti- cholera serum gives immediate protection to a healthy pig, but this protection lasts only a few weeks. The modified live virus alone, does not give immediate protection, but does provide protection for a year or more. The com- Ouhrtundina r*t>nrA bination of the anti-hog cholera , - ,um a nd,n S record ... • The Holstein-Friesian association of America has announced the completion of an outstanding official production record by a reg get protection, for the pigs. _ - \ ; Part of the trouble comes from Church music institute the fact that swine producers are C„K„J,.I„,I „ I i ,.L„. often busy with field work and lend Scheduled at Luther to postpone the swine vaccination. Later, when they hear of cholera in the neighborhood,, they rush to vaccinate. However, a cholera in fected pig appears healthy for as much as four to six days after he has contacted the disease. Vaccine cannot protect a pis in which the virus is already present. This emphasizes the importance of routine vaccination of young pigs to protect them before the more coming disease reaches them. Spear said thousands of herds in Iowa are being protected through vaccination with anti-hog cholera serum and modified virus now. Hog cholera can be further controlled throughout the state by routine vaccination on a greater number of herds of young, healthy pigs. The health of the herd at the time of vaccination is all-important, and it should be checked before vaccinating, if the desired protection is to be expected. Counties in which new cases of hog cholera were reported are Allamakee (2), Boone, Calhoun, Carroll, Cedar (2), Clarke, Dela- „ ware (3), Guthrie, Henry, Hum- — bolt, Jackson (2), Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Kossuth, Mahaska, Marion, Marshall, Montgomery, Muscatine, O'Brien, Page, Pottawattamie; Poweshiek (3), Scott, Sioux, Tama, VanBuren, Webster, Winneshiek (2). New outbreaks in both May and April were reported in Boone, Delware, Guthrie, Jackson, Jasper, Jefferson, Johnson, Mahaska, O'Brien, Page and Sioux counties. no this I'S'I The Oimmittf'" on Wovuhip and Church Music of Ilic American I.uthc an church will present a Church Music Inrtilul' 1 at Luther College, Drcnrah.

S. Department of Agrlcul- 265 pounds of butterfat. lure, and the founding of the Land Grant Colleges. With these words, Secretary of Agriculture Orville L. Freeman directed a special message of the nation's dairy farmers. It was May 15, 1862 that President Abraham Lincoln signed the act creating the department. "You dairymen are facing up to your consumer problems realistically and are attacking them with imagination," Freeman declared, "I want to commend the American Dairy Association for the vigorous consumer advertising program it is carrying out this year." He said the dairyman has come a long way from milking a few cows by hand to the modern farm with its automatic operation. And the dairy farmer's "technological revolution" is by no means over. Perhaps some day, he predicted, by the mere push of a button the dairyman will be able to control quality of milk, quantity of fats, solids-not-fat, odor, color and bacteria. As one example; he said the emphasis of breeding research formerly was placed on high fat and greater quantity in milk production. Now scientists, to meet changed, consumer interests, have turned to selective strains that produce milk containing more nonfat solids, especially protein, in proportion to the fat content. "Even as we remember these forces," the Secretary warned, "we ar$ reminded of broad new responsibilities and challenges. We must find ways to use our agricultural abundance for the best purposes of mankind and to assure farmers an opportunity to earn a fair return on their labor and investment."
