Progeny must be randomly selected from the oldest swine in the herd that are less than six months old, and all must achieve negative results using an official pseudorabies test listed in &nbsp;12:68:17:11. To maintain this status the producer must test annually as follows:</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (1)&nbsp;&nbsp;Conduct an official pseudorabies serologic test of 80 percent of all swine six months of age and older;</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (2)&nbsp;&nbsp;Conduct an official pseudorabies serologic test of a number of progeny equal to 20 percent of the breeding swine population of the herd.
