Abstract

This paper presents a comprehensive economic analysis of CSF surveillance in the Netherlands, taking into account the specialized structure of Dutch pig production and a complete list of possible surveillance activities. The results of the cost-effectiveness analysis show that conducting PCR tests on rendered animals was effective whereas routine serology in slaughterhouses or on sow farms was not. The results of the cost-benefit analysis indicate that the current surveillance system in the Netherlands is adequate. From an economic perspective there is little to be gained from intensifying surveillance.
