Abstract

The effect of benzoic acid on Salmonella Typhimurium was compared to formic acid + lactic acid in naturally infected weaners. Addition of 1% benzoic acid or 0.5% lactic acid + 0.5% formic acid did not result in a significant reduction of Salmonella prevalence, neither bacteriological nor serological, after 5 weeks of administration, compared to a control diet consisting of pelleted feed without organic acid.

Effect of benzoic acid in the feed on Salmonella typhimurium in weaned pigs

Rohnert Park, CA, United States

The effect of benzoic acid on Salmonella Typhimurium was compared to formic acid + lactic acid in naturally infected weaners. Addition of 1% benzoic acid or 0.5% lactic acid + 0.5% formic acid did not result in a significant reduction of Salmonella prevalence, neither bacteriological nor serological, after 5 weeks of administration, compared to a control diet consisting of pelleted feed without organic acid.
