Abstract

The EU Regulation No 2160/2003 imposes a reduction of the prevalence of Salmonella in food producing animals, like pigs. The Member States Salmonella serotypes prevalence varies. So could also vary the risk factors association with different Salmonella serotypes. The aim of this study is to assess if these differences are present in the Portuguese pig production system. The data used in the study refers to the baseline survey for the prevalence of Salmonella in breeding pigs in Portugal. A total of 1670 pen fecal samples, from 167 herds, were tested. Of these 170 samples were positive to Salmonella.

Differences in risk factors for Salmonella serotypes in breeding pigs in Portugal

Maastricht, Netherlands

The EU Regulation No 2160/2003 imposes a reduction of the prevalence of Salmonella in food producing animals, like pigs. The Member States Salmonella serotypes prevalence varies. So could also vary the risk factors association with different Salmonella serotypes. The aim of this study is to assess if these differences are present in the Portuguese pig production system. The data used in the study refers to the baseline survey for the prevalence of Salmonella in breeding pigs in Portugal. A total of 1670 pen fecal samples, from 167 herds, were tested.
