Abstract

In this paper a salmonella simulation model for the pork production chain is presented to evaluate the epidemiological and economic effects of hygiene measures and price differentiation on Salmonella. Results indicate that the farm stages in the chain are the most important stages to achieve reduction of Salmonella in pork. To reach an acceptable overall level of Salmonella however, every stage has to contribute. With a new system of price differentiation between infected and Salmonella free piglets and pork, the stages can be motivated to take measures for reduction and control of Salmonella.
