A. H. Mimeo Series 63-10
A herd utilizing 3 breeds in a rotation-breed- cross has been maintained at the Eureka Station since 1953. The decision was made in 1950 to continue the herd as an SPF herd to overcome disease problems. In order to "clean up" the hog facilities at the station, bred sows were moved to the Newell station in early December, 1960. During the winter and early spring for a period of six months, there were no hogs at Eureka. All housing and equipment were thoroughly cleaned.
