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

One of the elements of the Danish Salmonella Surveillance and Control Programme is surveillance of slaughter pig herds. All herds delivering more than 100 slaughter pigs per year are included in the surveillance. At the slaughterhouses meat samples are collected randomly according to the legislation from the Danish Veterinary Service. The meat samples are analysed at The Danish Veterinary Laboratory for the presence of specific Salmonella antibodies by a indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, the so-called mix-ELISA (I). The results of the analysis are registered in the Zoonosis data base owned by the Danish Ministry of Food. Agriculture and Fisheries. The results are registered under the herd specific Central Herd Register (CHR) number.
