Abstract

This study was a randomized, blinded trial to evaluate effect of vaccine on post harvest Salmonella contamination rate of pig carcasses. Pig was the experimental unit. Litters were assigned to treatment by farrowing date and parity. Piglets were double tagged, sex recorded and entire litters were either vaccinated (oral drench) or left as non-vaccinated controls. No movement of piglets between treatments was allowed. At weaning, control litters were placed on the top level of a truck, vaccinated pigs on the bottom level, transported to a wean-finish barn, and mixed within pen at the wean-finish barn.
