The secretary may establish a reserve supply of biological products of approved modified live virus hog-cholera vaccine and of anti-hog-cholera serum or its equivalent in antibody concentrate to be used as directed by the secretary in the event of an emergency resulting from a hog-cholera outbreak. Vaccine and serum or antibody concentrate from the reserve supply, if used for such an emergency, shall be made available to swine producers at a price which will not result in a profit. Payment shall be made by the producer to the department and such vaccine shall be administered by a licensed practicing veterinarian. The secretary may cooperate with other states in the accumulation, maintenance and disbursement of such reserve supply of biological products. The secretary, with the advice and written consent of the state veterinarian, and the advice and written consent of the veterinarian-in-charge for Iowa of the animal, plant, and health inspection service-veterinary services, United States department of agriculture, shall determine when an emergency resulting from a hog-cholera outbreak exists.
The secretary is authorized to sell or otherwise dispose of such vaccine and serum at such time as the state is declared a hog-cholera-free state by the United States department of agriculture, or if the potency of such vaccine and serum is in doubt. Money received under provisions of this section shall be paid into the state treasury.
