The Iowa Animal Health Advisory Committee was created in 1960 to work on hog cholera eradication, but later took on other diseases and issues such as tuberculosis, brucellosis and pseudorabies (Aujesky's Disease). Until August of 1976, the committee was called the Infectious Disease Committee. The Iowa Animal Health Advisory Committee served at the behest of the Iowa Secretary of Agriculture. Its members included a cross-section of individuals connected to the meat industry, including state and federal veterinarians and representatives from meat packing firms, livestock producer organizations, and farm organizations.
