Wisconsin takes steps to slow spread of pig virus
Posted February 13th, 2014 @ 9:16am by Associated Press

 

Wisconsin's state veterinarian has banned spring weigh-ins for pigs competing at fairs this year and is recommending all pigs shown at fairs be sent immediately to slaughter to prevent the spread of a deadly animal virus.

The steps are aimed at preventing the spread of the virus, which has killed as many as 4 million pigs since it showed up in the United States last April.

Wisconsin has seen six cases so far.
