Abstract:

Salmonella is widely distributed in bovine in different countries and is considered the most important related zoonotic diseases today which have a public health and economic importance. The present study was conducted to survey the prevalence of Salmonellosis in bovine fecal samples collected in ten different herds located at relatively different geographical areas, slaughter house samples and environmental samples by using standard microbiological and biochemical tests and confirm the isolated Salmonella by polymerase chain reaction targeting invA gene, specific at genus level. Six Salmonella isolates were recovered by screening 508 samples (388 bovine fecal samples from 10 different bovine herds, 57 lymphnode and gall bladder samples from slaughter house, 63 environmental samples from the bovine herds and Slaughter house) in the study. On an overall, the prevalence of Salmonella reported was 1.2% (6/508). The herd prevalence in the study was 20% (2 out of 10 herds). Whereas, the observed prevalence of Salmonella in bovine fecal samples, slaughter house samples and environmental samples were 1.04%, 1.75% and 1.6%, respectively. Polymerase chain reaction targeting invA gene confirmed the presence of Salmonella in the samples positive for Salmonella by culture method.
