Field trials to evaluate the efficacy of mash feed to reduce Salmonella shedding in swine
Is Version Of
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.
The objective of this study owas to evaluate the effect of corn based mash feed as a preharvest intervetion strategy to reduce shedding in pigs herds contaminated by Salmonella spp. In this study, three nurseries previously found contaminated by Salmonella in successive production cycles were selected to evaluate the effect of mash feed.
