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

Serology is a widely used tool in Salmonella monitoring programs in the pig industry. Vaccination might be an effective measure to control Salmonella infections at farm level, but may affect the herd’s serological status. The present study investigated the effect of different vaccination strategies against Salmonella Typhimurium in pigs on Salmonella serology at slaughter age.
