Abstract

The Danish Salmonella program for pigs and pork has been running for 20 years, and has resulted in a 90 % reduction of human cases attributed to Danish pork from 1993 to 2012 (Anonymous, 2013). The development in prevalence in breeding herds, sow herds, finisher herds and at carcass level was analysed as part of the ongoing preparations for the fifth Danish Salmonella plan for pigs and pork, which will be initiated from January 2014.
