Abstract :

The broiler chickens, especially if intensively reared, can be considered as an important reservoir
of Salmonella infections in humans. Many consumers assume that broiler chickens, grown under
conventional commercial conditions, have higher infection levels of Salmonella than free-range organic
chickens. The subject of this study was firstly to assess the incidence of Salmonella spp. In conventional
chicken farms, located in different areas of Italy, Germany, Lithuania and in the Netherlands. In addition
organic farms were investigated both in Italy and the Netherlands. The typification of Salmonella was also
effected in attempt to value the distribution of the organism on the basis of the different geographical areas.
The incidence of Salmonella in “conventional” broiler farms was 29% in Lithuania, 20% in Italy and 11% in
The Netherlands, while in Germany Salmonella was not detected. Salmonella was isolated from organic
broiler flocks in Italy (18, 1%) and in The Netherlands (3, 7%). Our results indicated that Salmonella
Enteritidis and Salmonella Typhimurium dominated in Lithuanian broiler flocks while Salmonella Infantis
and Salmonella Java were predo
