  1. Number of positive swabs on total per dietary treatment are given at 1 and 3 days post-infection (dpi) with 105 CFU Salmonella. Broilers were fed a diet either or not supplemented with a butyrate containing feed additive in a concentration of 3 g/kg of sodium butyrate.
  2. * Significant difference in positive samples between control and dietary treatment with butyrate derivative (p-value < 0.05).
