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

During the past year, studies have been conducted in the following areas: 1. the seasonal variations in environmental fecal Salmonella in pigs prior to shipment for slaughter 2. identification of groups of pigs that might be at risk for becoming infected with Salmonella 3. comparison of culture and the Danish MIX-ELISA for detection of Salmonella on pig farms 4. efficacy of SC54 vaccination of pigs at one day of age 5. the comparison of culture and the Danish MIX-ELISA for the detection of Salmonella in carcasses at slaughter 6. the impact of Salmonella infections on performance
