Abstract:

The present study was planned to assess antimicrobial properties of cow urine distillate. A total of six cow urine distillates comprising of five commercially available and one prepared in the laboratory were used in present study. All these six cow urine distillates were coded as C1, C2, C3, C4, C5 and P. The phenol coefficient of all six cow urine distillates was evaluated against S. aureus and E. coli. The phenol coefficients of C4 and C5 against S. aureus and E. coli were 0.04 ± 0.00 and 0.03 ± 0.00 respectively. Agar well diffusion technique was utilized for the in-vitro antimicrobial property of the cow urine distillate against S. aureus and E. coli. The C4 distillate showed maximum zone of inhibition (18 ± 0.45mm) against S. aureus and (15.21 ± 0.82 mm) against E. coli. The zones of inhibition of C5 distillate against S. aureus and E. coli were 10.51 ± 0.44 mm and 15.21 ± 1.27 mm respectively. The distillates C3, C4 and C5 were assessed for efficacy of them for their antimicrobial activity in three randomly selected poultry slaughter shops on platform used for poultry slaughter. The observations were made by calculating TVC, S. aureus and E. coli counts before and after treatment of cow urine distillates. It was interesting to note that all three distillate (C3, C4 and C5) showed highly significant (p< 0.01) lower TVC counts post treatment. Comparison of mean S. aureus counts of C3, C4 and C5 groups before and after treatment showed that C4 and C5 distillates highly significant (p<0.01) lower the S. aureus counts. However, the effect of C3 on S. aureus counts was not seen. The C3 and C4 cow urine distillates exhibited highly significant (p<0.01) reduction in E. coli counts whereas, C5 distillate significantly (p<0.05) reduced the E. coli counts.
