A fecal sample from a 4 1/2-year-old goat with a 2-month history of poor weight gain and diarrhea yielded a moderate growth of an organism resemblling Salmonella spp. on MacConkey agar. The organism was identified as Escherichia Fergusonii. The animal was euthanized. Samples of intestine, lung, liver, and kidney yielded the same organism, E. fergusonii.
