Title: Detection of Antibiotics Residues in Cattle’s meat in Ghanawa Slaughterhouse, Khartoum State, Sudan
Author: Wahab Alla, Mohamed Bashir
Abstract: This study was planned to detect antibiotics residues in Ganawa slaughterhouse, Khartoum State. The methodology was based on collection of informations from the owners of the cattle (n=50), and veterinary pharmacies (n=50) by means of questionnaire as well as the one plate test (O. P. T.) was employed for estimation of antibiotics residues from different organs of the cattle. The main results showed that most of the owners did not consult Veterinarians 88% (n=44). Furthermore, the majority of Veterinarians in Pharmacies 76% (n=38) left dose restriction and administration to the owners. Using one plate test (O. P.T.) revealed that 52 (17.33%) out of 300 cattle showed positive results in one or more of their organs and there was no significant level recorded for season and antibiotic residues (`7;2 = 0.720, P = 0.698, P > 0.05). Thirty (10%) Out of 300 kidneys tested showed positive result, while 23(7.66%) out of 300 livers tested were positive, and 9(3%) out of 300 muscles tested were positive. The age group of 4-6 years was scored high positive percentage (19.49%), (n=46 out of 236 of that age group) (`7;2 = 286.260, P = 0.000, P < 0.01). While, the body weight group of 100-200 kg had a higher percentage of positive (33.33%) (n=3 out of 9 of that body weight group) (`7;2 = 173.900, P = 0.000, P < 0.01). Moreover, the cross-breed had the higher percentage of positive (20%) (n=2 out of 10 of that breed) (`7;2 = 397.293, P = 0.000, P < 0.01). In conclusion, the findings of this work indicated a problem of misusing of antibiotics in cattle for meat production and the percentage of positive samples was considered to be high
