Abstract or Summary
  • Salmonella is a bacterium responsible for several illnesses, including typhoid fever, paratyphoid fever, and salmonellosis. It is commonly found in animal products, including poultry. Determination of potential reservoirs of Salmonella contamination is important to mitigate the risk of transmission and possible outbreaks. Outbreaks can negatively impact the livelihood of local Oregon farmers exempt from continuous federal inspection. The objective of this study was to determine potential reservoirs for Salmonella contamination at an Oregon poultry operation. Results indicated that chicken litter and water fountains were the reservoirs for contamination. Future studies could identify mitigation strategies that prevent Salmonella transmission through treatments targeting these reservoirs.
