(Salt Lake City, UT) — The state veterinarian wants to remind people about the new pig and hog rule that begins next week. Starting Monday, anyone who shows pigs at area fairs and livestock shows will not be allowed to return them to their farms. Instead, the pigs must be taken directly to a slaughterhouse. The move is designed to prevent a highly contagious livestock virus.
