ABSTRACT
Animal husbandry in Eastern Croatia, especially concerning family husbandries, is well known for its traditional way of swine breeding and processing meat and its products. Higher frequent occurrence of trichinellosis in swine during last decade has resulted in increased number of people reported to be infected. Beside human health, this disease directly threatens swine breeding, as well. If only one animal is found to be trichinellotic, it is necessary to remove harmlessly all the other swine from the same production group. This makes huge economical losses, both for the owner and country itself. Systematic monitoring and persistent practicing of by low regulated trichinellosis eradication and preventive measures during the last three years has significantly reduced number of infected swine, which directly reduced harmful effects on swine breeding and selection.
