Abstract

The objective was to examine the prevalence of Salmonella in manure from 30 Irish pig farms and to characterize any recovered isolates in order to assess potential risks and epidemiological relationships. Salmonella was detected in the manure from finisher pigs in 50% of the herds investigated. S. Typhimurium was the predominant serotype recovered and the most common phage types were DT104 and DT104b. Nineteen of the 29 Salmonella isolates recovered were resistant to one or more antibiotics and 15 of these (all Typhimurium) were multi-resistant.

Salmonella in Irish pig farms; prevalence, antibiotic resistance and molecular epidemiology

Maastricht, Netherlands

The objective was to examine the prevalence of Salmonella in manure from 30 Irish pig farms and to characterize any recovered isolates in order to assess potential risks and epidemiological relationships. Salmonella was detected in the manure from finisher pigs in 50% of the herds investigated. S. Typhimurium was the predominant serotype recovered and the most common phage types were DT104 and DT104b. Nineteen of the 29 Salmonella isolates recovered were resistant to one or more antibiotics and 15 of these (all Typhimurium) were multi-resistant.
