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

Biosecurity refers to the set of practices that limits the entry, persistence and spread of pathogenic agents. Biosecurity practices arc believed to be associated with disease occurrence in a herd. The aim of this study was to develop and validate a factor analysis model to classify industrial farrow-to-finish pig herds according to biosecurity measures and evaluate itsu usefulness as a cost-effective indicator of Salmonella risk.
