|Title:||Recovery of Enterobacteriaceae from shell surface and shell in early mid and late lay||Contributor(s):||Chousalkar, Kapil (author); Roberts, Juliet R (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11154||Abstract:||Microbial populations from samples of six pooled eggs were enumerated for Enterobacteriaceae on violet red bile glucose agar (Oxoid, Australia) plates with overlay (purple-red colonies). Presumptive colonies were counted and reported as log cfu/mL of egg rinsate. Translucency tended to be higher in late lay flocks. The Enterobacteriaceae count on the egg shell surface was slightly higher in late lay flocks but was not significantly different from that of the flocks in early lay. 'Salmonella' Infantis was isolated from egg shell rinse. Samples were collected throughout the year 2010-2011. This study is on-going so, as the sample size increases, new insights will be obtained.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||23rd Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, Sydney, Australia, 19th - 22nd February, 2012||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 23rd Annual Australian Poultry Science Symposium, p. 233-236||Publisher:||Poultry Research Foundation, University of Sydney||Place of Publication:||Sydney, Australia||ISSN:||1034-6260||Field of Research (FOR):||070205 Animal Protection (Pests and Pathogens)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://sydney.edu.au/vetscience/apss/documents/2012/APSS2012Proceedings.pdf||Series Name:||Australian Poultry Science Symposium Proceedings||Series Number :||23||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 135
