Control of salmonella infections in broiler chickens by the acid treatment of their feed



Control of salmonella infections in broiler chickens by the acid treatment of their feed



Veterinary Record 123(16): 416-421



In three experiments a solution of formic acid (Bioadd) was added to feed 'naturally' contaminated with salmonellas. In two of them no salmonella infections were demonstrated in broiler chickens given feed containing 0.6% (w/w) of the formic acid solution for seven weeks and in the third the infection rate was reduced considerably.
