Abstract

Oral-fluid sampling was attempted on 513 individually housed, mixed-parity sows. Younger sows (P < .01) and re-sampling (P < .001) were associated with successful collection. Diagnostic results on samples collected on 2 successive days were correlated. Oral-fluid sampling in breeding herds would facilitate surveillance and animal welfare.
