epidemiology of haemophilus pleuropneumoniae infection in pigs: a survey of ontario pork producers, 1981.information about factors associated with the spread and the effect of pleuropneumonia was obtained from 418 pork producers in ontario, who returned a mailed questionnaire. the overall herd prevalence of pleuropneumonia was 23.2%. the prevalence among herds with feeder pigs only was 34.3% and 16% among sow herds. the chance of pleuropneumonia breaking out in a herd was increased with increased traffic of pigs into the herd. the source of supplementary stock had an important effect on the chance ...19836831302
