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 aim of the investigation was to determine the prevalence of Salmonella in different herds and to discover risk factors for the introduction of Salmonella onto the farms. In the 100 herds investigated, 28.3% of the fattening herds N=60), 50.0% of the breeding herds (N=20), and 15.0 % of the farrow-to-feeder herds (N=20) were classified serologically as Salmonella positive.
