Abstract

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.

During 1974 a survey of polyarthritis incidence was carried out at abattoirs and on farms because of an apparent increase in polyarthritis during the last three years
