Subject: Identification Requirements for Official Pseudorabies (PRV) and Brucellosis testing in swine According to the 2010 Illinois Exhibition Health Requirements for Illinois State Fair, DuQuoin State Fair, and county fairs, swine need to be tested for PRV. Swine of all ages shall be negative to an official test for PRV conducted within 90 days prior to exhibition; or swine shall originate immediately and directly from a qualified PRV negative herd. Barrows and females in market classes must meet the same requirements as breeding swine. Because PRV and Brucellosis are official state/federal cooperative disease programs, all testing for these diseases is considered official testing. Therefore, the animals tested must be officially at the time of testing and accompanying documents should include this official identification.

Ear notching is only appropriate as official identification for swine when the ear notching has been recorded in the book of record of a purebred registry association.
