The following National Hog Farmer article discusses information presented by Carthage Veterinary Service Ltd., of Carthage, Illinois, a leading veterinary practice dedicated to swine health and production. It speaks to the need for bio-security vigilance in a number of areas - Feed, Pork, Transportation Equipment, Mortality Management Equipment and Foreign Visitors.
