Two similar trials were conducted in order to compare the variability in the number of salmonellae between the right and left sides of individual broiler carcasses with the variability among carcasses. In both trials, the variation between carcass sides was equal and was significantly less than the variation among carcasses. For trials involving bactericidal treatment, the authors would suggest that the utilization of carcass halves (one side for control, the other for treatment) would allow… CONTINUE READING
