A study of the foodborne pathogens: Campylobacter, Listeria and Yersinia, in faeces from slaughter-age cattle and sheep in Australia



A study of the foodborne pathogens: Campylobacter, Listeria and Yersinia, in faeces from slaughter-age cattle and sheep in Australia



Communicable Diseases Intelligence Quarterly Report 27(2): 249-257



In a study of faeces from 475 slaughter-age cattle and sheep from 19 herds or flocks, Campylobacter species (C. jejuni and C. coli) were cultured from all production systems studied and from 73.7% (14/19) of herds or flocks. Within individual properties, there was a higher prevalence in cattle than in sheep, with Campylobacter being most commonly isolated from feedlot cattle.
