Author(s): Naveen Kumar, Renu Gupta, Amit Kumar and Rajesh Khurana
E. coli is normal inhabitant of GI tract in broiler birds and is also a leading cause of economic losses in broiler industry. The high prevalence underscores the need for stringent measures to ensure the safety of poultry products and minimize the risk of foodborne illnesses. Present study was carried out to assess the prevalence of E. coli in finisher broilers. Cloacal swabs were collected from apparently healthy broiler chickens from 2019 to 2020 in Haryana state. All the samples were found to have E. coli isolates (100%, n=150/150). The present study was carried out to assess the prevalence of E. coli in finisher broilers. Improved biosecurity measures, proper waste management, and judicious use of antibiotics can help to reduce the prevalence of pathogenic microbes in broilers.
