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 mandatory national Danish Salmonella Control Program in swine has been in place since 1995. The over all goal for the current program is to reduce the salmonella prevalence in pork from 1.7% in 2001 to a maximum of 1.2% in 2006. In order to achieve this, the Danish swine industry decided to conduct a cost-effectiveness study in order to achieve the optimal salmonella reduction at the lowest possible costs.
