More Than Just Emerging: Prevalence of Salmonella Dublin in BC Dairy Herds—Dr. Ellen Boyd

 This video is password protected. All webinar videos have the same password, which was emailed to dairy producers in BC in December 2022. If you would like access to these videos and you are a dairy producer, please email innovation@bcdairy.ca, including your name, farm name, and province.

In the last 5 years Salmonella Dublin has been diagnosed on multiple farms for the first time and it is expected there are more herds where it is undiagnosed.  Dairy producers should all be aware of Salmonella Dublin as an emerging disease.

Dr. Ellen Boyd is a veterinary epidemiologist at the BC Ministry of Agriculture and graduate student at the University of British Columbia School of Population and Public Health (supervised by Dr. Chelsea Himsworth, veterinary pathologist at the BC Ministry of Agriculture Animal Health Centre). 

In this presentation, Dr. Boyd reviews the approach taken and Third Quarter results of the BC Salmonella Dublin Investigation and Management Program (SDIMP). The work will form part of her PhD thesis, which is focused on establishing the prevalence of Salmonella Dublin in BC dairy herds, while also identifying BC specific risk factors that will hopefully aid in the mitigation and management of this disease in British Columbia.

This research is funded in part by dairy producers, through the BC Dairy Association.
