Abstract
This project had three objectives: Objective 1: Determine the impact of lairage on the prevalence of MRSA carriage in swine; Objective 2: Determine the impact of normal pre-chill harvest procedures on MRSA prevalence; Objective 3: Compare the relative agreement of nasal vs. skin swabs on MRSA detection. Here we present the interim summary of the project
