International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine injection practices on swine farms as reported by veterinarians. Participants were members of the American Association of Swine Veterinarians. Veterinarians that self-reported as clinicians were contacted for participation. A web-based survey was administered regarding farm demographics, injection technology, needle types and sizes, and injection locations for each stage of production and for pharmaceutical classes. Additionally, descriptions of protocols for handling a broken needle event were recorded.
