Technical Abstract: A recent foodborne outbreak of Salmonella enterica serovar Reading revealed the need for effective control of this serovar in turkey production. Vaccinations can reduce Salmonella in poultry, but a better understanding of vaccine efficacy against outbreak-associated S. Reading and the impact on turkeys is needed. This study assessed the ability of two live-attenuated Salmonella vaccines, the commercial AviPro® Megan® Egg vaccine and an internally developed cross-protective BBS 866 DIVA vaccine, to reduce S. Reading colonization in turkeys when given via two vaccination protocols.
