Abstract Multilocus enzyme electrophoresis (MLEE) was compared with restriction endonuclease analysis (REA) and ribotyping as a method for differentiating isolates of Pasteurella multocida in a retrospective study of eight fowl cholera outbreaks on seven turkey farms. MLEE typing matched the results previously obtained by REA and ribotyping, except that the two outbreaks linked by REA and ribotyping were not linked by MLEE typing. MLEE appears to be a useful technique for investigations of fowl cholera outbreaks.
