Abstract:

The present study was conducted in the Division of Livestock Production and Management, Faculty of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry (SKUAST- Kashmir) to assess the Salmonella count changes in the poultry farm waste during different stages and seasons of composting. Poultry farm waste in the form of poultry carcass (dead birds) and poultry litter was selected for this purpose. Four treatment recipes formulated for composting were: T1: Poultry carcass + Poultry litter, T2: Poultry carcass + Poultry litter + Paddy straw, T3: Poultry carcass + Poultry litter + Effective Microbes and T4: Poultry carcass + Poultry litter + Paddy straw + Effective Microbes. At initial stage the overall highest Salmonella count of 8.58 log10cfu was observed in T2. The overall lowest Salmonella count of 5.16 log10cfu was observed in T3 group (with effective microbes) at the end of primary stage. At the end of secondary stage the overall lowest Salmonella count of 1.33 log10cfu was observed in T4 (containing paddy straw with effective microbes). There was a drastic reduction in the Salmonella count from initial to secondary stage of composting during both the seasons. It was concluded that composting significantly reduces Salmonella bacteria in the poultry farm waste to give a secure and safe end product.
