This change in the certificate above has been made in order that it many be
fu~lloted~ for use in cerltify.in~ jimmunllized swine for sihipment to various foreign

,THE CA4RE OF IMLMUNIZED) SWP\INE FROM PUBLICI STOCKYARDS.

The improper care of hogs following their immuunization. agins7it hog cholera,
administ-ered in the public stockyards and after arrival at destination, has
resulted in losses which may be materially lessened by observing the following
instructions:
Shipments should be made plromlyl~1 after immunization, or should be de-
layed for not less than 10 days. Truck hauls and shipments not exceedling
86i hours in, length can be made promplylla to advantage.
Avoid crowding; allow stockier hogs relatively more floor space than fat
flogs.
