Abstract Toxoplasma gondii is an underestimated food borne zoönoses with a human disease burden that probably equals salmonellosis. Modern pig production systems have led to a disappearance of Toxoplasma infections, but a reemergence has recently been observed on animal friendly pig farms. This project provides strong support for a role of rodents in the transfer of Toxoplasma infection to the pigs on such farms. Rodent control should be included in the quality assurance programs of animal friendly production systems.
