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

Salmonellosis is a threat to the whole pork production chain. Different risks factors have been associated with Salmonella contamination. The aim of this project was to assess the efficacy of a comprehensive control program in a 30 000 sows integrated company located in Canada, with an emphasis on pre-harvest control measures, to limit Salmonella pork carcasses contamination. Based on previous molecular epidemiology investigations, the main sources of contamination were identified as the environment and the replacement gilts. The features of this 10 years program consisted of : Sourcing with negative replacement gilts, use of mash coarse feed on gilt finishers and sow herds, application of detailed cleaning and disinfection procedures on all farms, transport vehicles, slaughtering facilities and accessories, respect of all-in all-out and single source.
