dc.description.abstract <p>The use of plant-derived products with antimicrobial activity appears as an alternative for the control of pig salmonellosis. The results of 3 field trials aimed at assessing the efficacy of different concentrations of a galactomannan (Salmosan®) in the control of Samonella infection in fattening pigs are presented. It was found that the addition of ≥2 kg/T of Salmosan® to the regular diet of pigs during the entire fattening period was able to decrease significantly the prevalence of Salmonella infection and shedding at slaughter. This galactomannan could be considered a good complementary tool along with good hygiene and biosecurity for the control of this infection in the pig farm.</p>
