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 study objective was to investigate the probability of transmission of Salmonella from sows to their offspring. In each of 3 farrow-to-finish herds (A, B, and C), one cohort of sows (n=34, n=40, n=32, respectively), together with 3 piglets of their offspring (n=102, n=120, n=96, respectively) were selected.
