Association between aflatoxicosis and Salmonella: A case study
Craig W. Pfeifer, DVM
PDF version is available online.
We investigated a Salmonella cholerasuis outbreak in a 500-head finishing herd that occurred coincidentally with a change to a corn source contaminated with detrimental levels of aflatoxins. The diarrhea was resolved when pigs were switched to an aflatoxin-free corn source. In this article, we review the current nutritional alternatives being researched to prevent the negative effects of aflatoxins on pigs.
Perspectives from the field are reviewed for their logic, relevance, and presentation.
