Abstract

The Erzeugergemeinschaft Rheinland w.V., located in Moers, is a so-called “Systemberater” for the German quality assurance system, “Qualität und Sicherheit” (QS). One of its tasks is to support the organisation of Salmonella monitoring for its 233 fatteners. This includes the distribution of information about the actual salmonella status. EG Rheinland participates in work package 2.1. within the Interreg IV A “SafeGuard” project. The overall aim of this work package is to analyse salmonella results proactively in a database called “EGR-Backbone” in order to inform farmers faster in case of changes in the salmonella antibody status. Prior to this project, EGR-farmers only got information about the average result of the last 60 samples of the past year on a quarterly basis.
