(a) The animal health commissioner is hereby authorized to take control of any pseudorabies infected herd of swine from the owner. A pseudorabies infected herd of swine is a herd that has been determined to be infected with pseudorabies virus by official pseudorabies testing procedures conducted at approved veterinary diagnostic laboratories from adequate samples collected from the herd by an accredited veterinarian.

If, in the opinion of the animal health commissioner, sufficient progress toward pseudorabies free status, as defined in the state-federal-industry pseudorabies eradication program as in effect on the effective date of this act, is not being made, the animal health commissioner shall order the depopulation of such herd.

(c) Whenever any swine are depopulated under provisions of this act by order of the animal health commissioner, the owner of such swine shall be paid for such swine in an amount determined by the animal health commissioner from funds appropriated for such purpose by the legislature.

(d) The animal health commissioner may adopt rules and regulations as necessary to carry out the purposes of this act.
