Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Dublin (S. Dublin) is a cause of disease in cattle of all ages,
although the most commonly clinically affected group is calves aged 2 weeks to 3 months. A special feature of
S. Dublin is the tendency to produce persistent infections without clinical manifestation in some infected cattle –
also called carriers.
