Microbiological, Physicochemical, and Histological Analyses of Broiler Carcasses with Cachexia

Abstract: Broiler carcasses presenting cachexia, as determined by the federal inspection agency, were submitted to microbiological, physicochemical, and histological analyses. Over a 2-month period, 278 carcasses from straight-run flocks of 43-to 48-d-old Cobb broilers from two different farms were condemned due to cachexia and subjected to gross examination in the final inspection sector. Out of the 278 carcasses, 131 did not present any gross signs of infection, and were submitted to microbiological analyses (n=83), p… Show more

“…However, differences in the condemnation rate of small broilers could have been due to differences in disease occurrence on farms or culling management within companies. An increased prevalence of these broilers is a sign of weakened welfare of the broiler ock on-farm [20,35] and is usually a sign of long-standing disease as locomotor problems and inability to reach food [16,34].…”
