Quotes

The American Veterinary Medical Association reported on discussion of the measure recently noting that the bill will "not only clarify the Controlled Substances Act so that veterinarians will be permitted to bring and use controlled substances in the usual course of practice outside of their registered locations, but it will also seek to alleviate the legal burdens for veterinarians practicing along state borders."
"If piglets are to be cross-fostered, this process should be done when the piglet is older than 24 hours as gut-closure has taken place" he said
Powell continues, "Unlike poultry and cattle, swine production isn’t a huge commercial industry in Arkansas. However, there are some swine operations “and they’re certainly concerned about PEDV.”"
"If you implement the plan when you get it (PEDV), you will lose four weeks of production," Safranski says. "If you have to develop the plan first, it will last much longer."
