Polyarthritis was proclaimed a compensatable disease under the Pig Industry Compensation Act in February, 1971.
As a result of the proclamation owners with pigs condemned for polyarthritis at abattoirs were compensated for loss of the entire carcass. Owners of pigs partially condemned for arthritis received no compensation.
