RECORDED in Western Australia for the first time last year, swine erysipelas is a potential menace to the pig raising industry.
This preliminary description is given to help farmers recognise its occurrence. I t is not known how widespread the disease might be, and farmers' co-operation is needed to estimate its extent.
Any suspected cases should be reported without delay.
