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 effect on the prevalence of Salmonella and productivity of diets with varying wheat: barley ratios and with added wheat bran for finishers (30-100 kg live weight) was studied in one herd. The diets were provided as expanded and pelleted feed and fed to six groups with 384 pigs/group divided into 24 replicates. The proportion of wheat: barley was: Group I: I 00:0, group 2: 75:25, group 3: 50:50, group 4: 25:75, group 5: 0:100. Group 6 contained 85% wheat and 15% wheat bran. The pigs were fed ad libitum as dry feed.
