Abstract

Management practices can play an important role in affecting animal health. Sub-clinically ill animals entering harvest can have pleural adhesions known as peel-outs. The focus of this study was to examine how these pleural adhesions can be associated with Salmonella and respiratory pathogens, as well as to get a national estimate of peel-outs. The results suggest pleural adhesions are not significantly associated with Salmonella or respiratory bacterial contamination.
