Infection withSalmonella anatum of the cow in connection with salmonellosis of ducks

  • A. Clarenburg
  • H. H. Vink


S. anatum was cultivated from the liver and the gall-bladder of a cow, slaughtered in emergency. Among the ducks of the same farm an infection with the sameSalmonella type was found. It is obvious that the infection of the cow was caused by the contaminated faeces of the ducks.

So far as we are aware noS. anatum has previously been described from cattle.
