Abstract

The intestinal spirochaete Brachyspira pilosicoli causes intestinal spirochaetosis (IS), a diarrhoeal disease first recognised in 1980. This condition results in production losses due to reduced growth rates and poor feed conversion. The purpose of this study was to investigate the distribution and strain diversity of B. pilosicoli on two piggeries in Western Australia.
