In Sri Lanka, the control programme for Salmonellosis is carried out by Department of Animal Production and Health (DAPH), in order to keep Salmonella carrier status at a less than 1% level in poultry breeder flocks. This study was aimed at serologically verifying the Salmonella carrier status in the two Grand Parent farms during the period of 2011- 2013, by performing whole blood agglutination test. In the present study, a total of 10 batches (nA=20915) from one farm and 9 batches (nB=4651) from the other were tested for antibody detection, once the age of the birds reached 20 weeks. The results revealed the Salmonella carrier status to be below 1%, in both farms during the study period as recommended by the DAPH.
