Horizontal transmission of Salmonella typhimurium in broiler chicks

Journal of Applied Poultry Research 7(1): 75-80

Horizontal transmission of Salmonella typhimurium in broiler chicks

The horizontal transmission of S. typhimurium from challenged chicks (seeders) to non-challenged broiler chicks (contacts) was studied. In each of 3 experiments, 500 one-day-old chicks were divided into 5 groups in which 0, 5, 10, 25 or 50% were challenged with S. typhimurium by oral gavage. The challenge dose was 10superscript 2, 104 and 106 c.f.u. in the 3 experiments, respectively.
