An updated transmission model for Salmonella in grower-finisher pigs
Is Version Of
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.
A model describing the transmission of Salmonella between pigs on a British continuous-production grower-finisher pig farm has previously beend eveloped. We will describe improvements to the model and updates to the parameter estimation.
