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

The aim of this study was to describe the occurrence of three genes coding for tetracycline resistance in Salmonellae isolated from normal slaughter weight pigs, and to test for relationships between the occurrence of these genes, phenotypic resistance, and the use of antimicrobials in feed and water.
