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 objective of this study was to determine the effect of the acidification of pelleted feed on the carriage and seropositivity against Salmonella in finisher pigs of a commercial herd. Three different diets were assayed: 0.8% formic acid (group 1); 0.4% lactic acid plus 0.4% formic acid (group 2) and a feedstuff without additives (group 3). one thousand pigs were included in each treatment that was administered from 19 to 26 weeks of age.
