Intensified sampling




25) On CHR-numbers found salmonella in one or more herds, takes food region in each of the other flocks on site 5 pairs of boot swabs, 2 dust samples as well as a sample for testing for use of antimicrobial agents. Then, from each flock at properties where one or more flocks are infected, to be taken from the eggs, see. table 1, with a maximum of 4 weeks apart. These samples can be taken by the owner. In the case of holiday periods and similar to eggs sampled in time to the latest laboratory result is not more than 28 days old.
