Survival of salmonellas in urine and dry faeces from cattle--an experimental study.

Abstract

In order to contribute to the understanding of Salmonella transmission via animal excretes the survival of Salmonellas in cattle urine and in dry cow faeces was studied. It was shown that in urine, separated in the gutter without active mixing with faeces, Salmonella did not survive more than 5 days. In dry cow faeces on different stall surfaces Salmonella Dublin were found to survive for almost 6 years on the 4 tested surface materials.
