Here are 3 strategies to keep the Salmonella outbreak at bay:

1. Ensuring proper management and sanitation

Salmonella can contaminate cages, coops, soil, and everything else sick birds come into contact with. To prevent the spread of bacteria, the storage facilities, transport vehicles, setters, ventilation system, and entire hatchery should be disinfected and kept hygienic.

In order to avoid bacterial contamination, eggs should be gathered often, and cracked eggs should be removed. Rodents, birds, and other insects that aid in the spread of Salmonella should be eradicated. In addition, all new and old equipment should be cleaned and disinfected.

How Does It Get Around?

Salmonella can be found in both human and animal intestines. It is spread from person to person through the consumption of foods that have come into contact with the feces of an infected person or animal (known as fecal-oral transmission). Furthermore, salmonellosis can be contracted by touching something contaminated by feces (such as a pet or wild animal) and then touching their mouth or nose before washing their hands.

The following are the most typical sources of infection:

Feces on the ground or during preparation contaminated raw fruits and vegetables and raw meats that haven’t been properly cooked.
