The project was aimed at evaluating the potential occupational exposure of swine farm workers to dust and microorganisms present in piggery bioaerosols (especially in its respirable fraction) under various breeding conditions. Sampling was carried out in 14 buildings located at 13 pig breeding and production farms in Poland. Concentrations of inhalable and respirable dusts in the air of the piggeries were low (means, respectively, 1.76 and 0.23 mg/m3).
