Table 5 Colonization of cecum and spleen bySalmonellaEnteritidis strain 147 in the second trial

From: Effect of in feed administration of different butyrate formulations on Salmonella Enteritidis colonization and cecal microbiota in broilers

 Dietary treatment
ControlFat-protected butyrateWax
Mean cecum (SD)3.64a (1.47)2.89ab (1.04)2.40b (0.76)
Mean spleen (SD)2.25 (0.64)1.93 (0.08)1.94 (0.12)
  1. Mean log CFU/g cecum and spleen values and standard deviation (SD) are shown at 4 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 differences for cecum colonization among groups are indicated with different letters (a, b). No differences for spleen colonization was detected.
