Help ensure that swine remain healthy during the coming fair and rodeo season

ATTENTION SWINE EXHIBITORS: The 2012 Texas fair and rodeo season is right around the corner. The Texas Pork Producers Association, the Texas Animal Health Commission and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service would like to share important information to help ensure that show hogs remain healthy. Influenza or “flu” occasionally can be transmitted from people to pigs and from pigs to people. Texas has not had any cases of the H3N2v (variant). Remember: Pork is safe.
