This paper deals with the isolation of Salmonella on 3 herds during the period from May 1984 to May 1985. Isolated Salmonella were examined for serotypes, adhesive fimbriae, antibiotic susceptibility and detection of R plasmid. The results were as follows; Of total 1505 cattle, 24 Salmonella were isolated from 18 cattle (1.2%) and their serotypes were S. enteritidis (9 strains), S. derby(4 strains), S. infantis (1 strain), $C_1$ group(8 strains), $C_2$ group(1 strain) and untypable(1 strain). Twelve strains of Salmonella were isolated from 227 cattle with diarrhea and their serotypes were S. enteritidis(4 strains), S. derby(3 strains), S. infantis(1 strain), $C_1$ group(3 strains) and untypable(1 strain). The isolation rate of Salmonella in cattle varied from 1.6 to 0.9% in 3 herds, it was higher in summer and autumn and lower with the age. Of total 24 strains, 23 were adhesive type 1 fimbriae. Antibiotic susceptibility test of Salmonella isolated was performed by the agar dilution method, using 9 antibiotics as follows: ampicillin(Am), chloramphenicol(Cm), gentamicin(Gm), kanamycin(Km), nalidixic acid(Na), rifampicin(Rf), streptomycin(Sm), sulfadimethoxine(Su) and tetracycline(Tc). All the strains tested were susceptible to Am, Cm, Gm, Km, Na, Rf and Tc. Of total 24 strains, 23(95.8%) were resistant to Su and 14(58.3%) to Sm. Of the 23 resistant Salmonella strains, all the strains were found to carry R plasmid. Among them, two strains which had the R plasmid conferring SmSu resistance was transferable at $25^{circ}C$ only.
