    Salmonella Typhimurium causes subclinical infection in pigs and it has been associated with decreased production parameters. Vaccination in piglets with a live attenuated Salmonella Typhimurium vaccine has proved its value by reducing Salmonella prevalence, decreasing transmission on pig farms and improving technical parameters. The aim of this poster is to estimate the economic impact, accounting for uncertainty, of the use of vaccination as intervention strategy to prevent Salmonella infections in farrow-to-finish pig farms.
