- LIVESTOCK CARE
- Dr. Saul Kitt came to a meeting in Omaha with a gene deleting vaccination for herpes viruses. It was well-received but controversial. USDA approved the vaccine prior to the April 1986 meeting. Once it went public, some people were upset, then the USDA pulled the license off the market for a few months, and then it went back on the market after they looked at it again. Had to vote on what vaccination to use since there was now two choices.
- FARM ORGANIZATIONS
- Created the National Pseudo rabies Control Board because they didn't like the way the USDA had been established. Six people were chosen to make up the board. Dr. Paul Lang was the first chairman of the board. Controlled whether pigs could move from state to state. Went to North Carolina and became friends with Jimmy Grand who was the commissioner of ag. In his state. Gave Bradshaw a hard time after he gave his speech about how NC has a lot of pseudo rabies in the pigs.
