Quotes

"There's a lot of pride that comes along with producing food - and understandably - a lot of responsibility. Youth PQA Plus helps make today's young farmers more aware of their personal responsibility, and the tools available to meet this duty."
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.”"
