Occurence of vancomycin resistant enterococci in broilers

In 2020, the occurrence of VRE in intestinal samples from broilers was investigated with screening methods. Such bacteria were isolated from 6% of the samples. This shows that the decrease in occurrence of VRE among broilers in Sweden since 2005 has continued. All of the isolates belonged to the clone of E. faecium with vanA that is the most common among VRE in broilers in Sweden.
