Campylobacter is not a commensal in chickens and compromises gut health and performance

Speaker: Dr Lisa WILLIAMS, Swansea, UK

Campylobacter is not a harmless commensal, affecting bird health, welfare and performance. There is a changing host-pathogen dynamic, with possible campylobacter mutation, including bacteria gene transfer. Exposure is difficult to prevent and the best way forward is to improve chicken resistance.
