SWINE SPREAD FOOT
AND Mn DISEASE
New Outbreak Emphasizes Need
of Careful Inspection by Far
mers and Stockraisers.
Washington, D. C., AUG. 9.-The
susceptibility ol swine to the foot
aml-mouth disease and the failure on
tlie nart of swine owners to recognize
its symptoms are giving the Federal
authorities no small aawtiAt of worry
in their "clean-up" campaign.
Sore mouth, a common indication of
the disease, is an ordinary sequence
of hog cholera, and contusions on
t\.o feet are frequent ia swine which
have been driven or shipped. For
these reasons little attention is paid
by the owners of swine to t'.iese
symptoms, and unless the herd is lo
cated within suspicious territory
foot-and-mouth disease may continue
In a chronic form for a considerable
length of time before discovery. The
danger of course lies in the ability
o these animals to disseminate the
Since the first case of foot-and
mouth disease found In a herd of
hogs in Michigan, w*nirU later per
mitted the infection of the Chicago
Stock Yards, hogs more than any
other animal have been responsible
for thc spread of the disease. A few
months ago, In the outskirts of Phl
i.v>c?nhla, a dtstri?t containing close to
I '?0,000 swine kept In small lots, sever
I al thousand were found to be infec
On July 29 foot-and-mouth disease
infection was discovered to exist in a
herd of 20 cattle within the city limits
of H?rndl, Steuben County, New
York. Another* hord of 25 cattle,
pastured across the road from these,
has been exposed and is under sur
veilance. As no known cases of the
disease had previously been found
within a radium of over 75 miles, the
souce of the Infection remained a
mystery until two days later, when
125 swino, divided among fi VJ herds,
were found Infected within a half
milo of tho first-discovered pre
the disease in a mild form for a con
the disease In a mild form for a con
siderable length of time. Infection
had been carried from these to the
cattle through drainage.
This again emphasises the need, the
authorities state, for continued care
ful examination of ell live stock in
previously Infected areas, especially
large herds of swine. Farmers and
stock misers by giving immediate
notice of any suspicious cases to the
nearest health officer will greatly aid
the authorities in their efforts .to eli
minate this pest, which if allowed to
gain a foothold would result in un
told damage to the nation.
Owing to the tact that few animals
are shipped from the sections in
which the latest outbreak occurred, lt
ls believed that no serious or wide
spread complications will -result from
thia new center of infection.
