For example, in research at Ridgetown College in Ontario, Canada, composting of whole swine carcasses, including sows of more than 450 pounds killed Salmonella typhimurium, Streptococcus suis, Bordetella bronchiseptica, Listeria monocytogenes, Actinobacillus suis, and Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae
. High temperatures, averaging above 50 [degrees] C (122 [degrees] F) through the winter (when the composting piles were started before the winter), were sufficient to kill these pathogens.
