Herein, we describe an outbreak of listeriosis on a farm with approximately 90 animals (sheep, goats, a cow with a calf and a few horses). According to the anamnesis and genotyping results and according to the fact that the deaths ceased after the animals started grazing and feeding with silage stopped, we concluded that contaminated silage was the source of infection. This outbreak investigation is a good example of the usefulness of typing methods for epizootiological purposes.
