Materials and methods: Ileocolic lymph nodes from 30 pigs from each of 146 herds were sampled at slaughter. Tissue from five pigs was pooled for one bacterial culture. Retained frozen tissues from the same pigs were cultured individually (n = 82 herds) from a subset of those with Salmonella-positive pools (n = 100 herds). A mathematical relationship was described to predict approximate individual prevalence based on number of positive pools. Isolates were serotyped. To test for effects of… CONTINUE READING
