Abstract

Previous studies of macroscopic conditions detected in slaughter pigs at abattoir through voluntary pig health schemes have shown that some lesions have strong seasonal effects. This led us to investigate if weather and other climatic conditions are associated with increases or decreases in the prevalence of the conditions.
