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
Control Fat-protected butyrate Wax
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.
