Recommendations for pen-based oral-fluid collection in growing pigs
Sampling guidelines were developed by observing pigs during oral-fluid sample collection in commercial herds. Pigs with previous oral-fluid collection experience (“trained”) should be allowed 20 minutes access to the rope. Pigs with no prior experience (“untrained”) should be allowed 60 minutes. One collection is enough to train pigs.
