The investigation described in this report was designed to demonstrate the reaction of newborn colostrum-deprived pigs to a highly attenuated live virus and to determine the feasibility of using such pigs as experimental hosts for evaluation of hog cholera virus (HCV).
The results of this study show a newborn, hysterectomy-derived, colostrum-deprived pig is an excellent experimental host for critical immunologic studies of highly attenuated hog cholera vaccines.
