Because Bacteriophages are safe, selective and effective in killing pathogenic bacteria without changing the characteristics of food products, they are a suitable measure for the prevention of foodborne zoonoses. Using bacteriophages in primary production for the reduction of pathogenic bacteria aims at reducing the target bacteria in the intestina flora of commercial livestock. First field trials were carried out to reduce Campylobacter in commercial broiler flocks and among practical considerations, population dynamics of the intestinal flora have to be considered for such application strategies. We will present results from field trials and experiences on these issues of phage application.
