WVC 19 - 9 A- ARTICLE 9A. FEEDING OF UNTREATED GARBAGE TO SWINE.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 1 §19-9A-1. Definitions.
The following words shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this section, unless the context otherwise requires or a different meaning is specifically prescribed.

(a) "Garbage" means putrescible animal and vegetable wastes resulting from the handling, preparation, cooking and consumption of foods including animal carcasses or parts thereof;

(b) "Persons" means the state, any municipality, political subdivision, institution, public or private corporation, individual, partnership, or other entity;

(c) "Commissioner" means the state commissioner of agriculture or his authorized agents.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 2 §19-9A-2. Permit required for feeding garbage to swine; renewal; fee; exception.
(a) No person shall feed garbage to swine without first securing a permit to do so from the commissioner. Such permits shall be renewed annually. The fee for obtaining such permit shall be five dollars.

(b) This article shall not apply to any person who feeds only his own household garbage to swine which are raised for such person's own use.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 3 §19-9A-3. Application for permit.
Any person desiring to obtain a permit to feed garbage to swine or to renew the same shall make written application therefor to the commissioner on forms provided by the commissioner.

Upon determination by the commissioner that any person holding such permit, or who has applied for a permit hereunder, has violated or failed to comply with any of the provisions of this article, or any of the rules or regulations promulgated thereunder, the commissioner may revoke such permit or refuse to issue a permit to such applicant.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 5 §19-9A-5. Cooking or other treatment of garbage required.
All garbage, regardless of previous processing, shall, before being fed to swine, be thoroughly heated to at least 212 degrees F for at least thirty minutes, unless treated in some other manner which shall be approved in writing by the commissioner as being equally effective for the protection of public health and control of livestock diseases.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 6 §19-9A-6. Inspection and investigation; maintenance of records.
(a) Any authorized representative of the commissioner shall have the power to enter at reasonable times upon any private or public property for the purpose of inspecting and investigating conditions relating to the treating of garbage to be fed to swine.

(b) The commissioner may require maintenance of records relating to the operating of equipment for and procedure of treating garbage to be fed to swine and any authorized representative of the commissioner may examine any such records or memoranda pertaining to the feeding of garbage to swine. Copies of such records shall be submitted to the commissioner upon request.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 7 §19-9A-7. Administration and enforcement of article; rules and regulations.
The commissioner is hereby charged with administration and enforcement of the provisions of this article, and is authorized to make and enforce all rules and regulations which the commissioner may deem necessary to carry out the purposes of the article.

WVC 19 - 9 A- 8 §19-9A-8. Penalties; enjoining violation.
Any person who shall violate any of the provisions of, or who fails to perform any duty imposed by, this article, or who violates any rule or regulation promulgated thereunder shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and, upon conviction thereof, may be punished by a fine of not less than twenty- five dollars nor more than three hundred dollars, or by imprisonment for a term of not more than one year, or by both such fine and imprisonment. In addition thereto, such person may be enjoined from continuing such violation. Each day upon which such violation occurs shall constitute a separate violation of this article.
