Summary

The presence of Salmonella and Campylobacter spp. in rodents and insectivores (n 282) was investigated
on organic farms. Infections were encountered in house mice (8 of 83 Campylobacter positive and 1 of 83
Salmonella sp. strain Livingstone positive) and brown rats (1 of 8 Campylobacter positive) but not in other
species. No shared Campylobacter genotypes were found between rodent and pig manure isolates. Effective
on-farm rodent management is recommended.
