Cloacal swabs were sampled from 100 duck farms in Taiwan between March 2000 and January 2001 for isolation and standard cultivation of Salmonella spp. and thermophilic Campylobacter spp. Salmonella spp. were isolated from 4.6% (91/2000) of ducks from 20% (20/100) of duck farms. Ten serotypes of Salmonella enterica were identified: S. Potsdam (31.9% of isolates), S. Dusseldorf (18.7%), S. Indiana (14.3%), S. Typhimurium (7.7%), S. Hadar (5.5%), S. Newport (4.4%), S. Derby (4.4%), S. Montevideo (2.2%), S. Schwarzengrund (2.2%), and S. Asinnine (1.1%). Isolation of S. Asinnine or S. Indiana from poultry had not hitherto been described in Taiwan. The salmonella isolation rate in ducklings under two weeks of age was significantly higher than the other age groups (P
