Abstract

We carried out a one-year study, in 2008, at 53 farrow-to-finish farms in Brittany, France, to determine the proportion of sows excreting Campylobacter and to determine whether Campylobacter excretion by fattening pigs on these farms was related to transmission from sows. We also determine the genotypes of the Campylobacter isolates.
