  • Time to Think About Salmonella Control

    In an April 2010 article, Richard K. Gast discussed and reviewed preharvest salmonella control strategies to identify the overall salmonella control strength of initiatives both individually and together. One of the items Gast noted was the persistence of salmonella even after removal of an infected flock as well as the vital role moisture levels play in the presence and location of salmonella. 

    With the approaching summer months—and the hot, humid conditions they bring—it’s important to learn how to balance poultry house and litter moisture/relative humidity, ventilation and waterline management to maintain flock performance while providing conditions that are unfavorable for salmonella.
