Abstract

Sixty-four samples of soil taken from turkey yards of 3 ranches which had not been in use for 6 to 7 months were submitted for examination for Salmonella and Arizona groups. Seven (58%) of 12 samples from 12 pens of a ranch yielded Salmonella livingstone, Salmonella anatum, Salmonella binza and Salmonella worthington. One (5%) of 20 samples from other 4 pens of the same ranch had Arizona 7 : 1,7,8. One sample had 940 viable Salmonella per gram.
