Abstract: Salmonellosis is one of the diseases that can infect Bali cattle. This disease is caused by Salmonella bacteria that can give multiple symptoms from fever, diarrhea, abortion and Food Borne disease that can harm humans. In order to conduct preliminary diagnoses, see the prevalence and prevent the spread of this bacteria, faecal isolation from Bali cattle should be researched. 30 samples of Bali cattle faeces from various locations were used for this research. The samples were transported using Stuart Transport media and then enriched in Selenite Broth media. The samples were continued to be isolated to Xylose Lysine Deoxycholate (XLD), Triple Sugar Iron Agar (TSIA), Simmon's Citrate Agar (SCA), and Sulfide Indole Motility (SIM) media. The result showed that Salmonella can be isolated from faeces. From 30 faecal samples, 11 samples (36%) show signs of Salmonella bacteria morphology. After further testing with SIM media test, from 11 samples, 3 confirmed Salmonella morphology and 8 showed Edwardsiella characteristic, this found need to further investigate.
