Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between the seroprevalence of Toxoplasma gondii antibodies in swine in commercial pork production systems in Iowa, USA and the source of water (surface water vs. well water vs. rural processed water) and method of water delivery (surface or trough vs. nipple vs. cup). Also the study evaluated the association between T. gondii seroprevalence and other selected potential farm variables.
