Blood samples were obtained from feral swine in Texas to determine the seroprevalence of selected pathogens. Exposures rates were 35%, 1%, and 1% for pseudorabies virus, Brucella, and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, respectively. Simple modifications to enclosures may provide adequate biosecurity for swine at risk within this region.
