Cienc. Rural [online]. 2003, vol.33, n.5, pp. 889-892. ISSN 0103-8478.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-84782003000500015.

Portions of muscle from carcasses of 74 fattening pigs and 150 culled sows were collected from abattoir in the State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The samples were inoculated into EMJH (Ellinghausen, MacCullough, Johnson & Harris) medium and the culture filtered through 0.45µm membrane on blood agar. Arcobacter sp were isolated, 69 isolates, typed by PCR as Arcobater butzleri, respectively from fattening pigs (21 isolates, 29.3%) and culled sows (48 isolates, 32%).

Keywords : carcasses; fattening pigs; culled sows; Arcobacter butzleri.
