Genetic markers of cattle tolerant to heat stress will be assessed. Microarray hybridization will be utilized to obtain estimates of gene expression changes due to heat stress within breeds of cattle. In vivo and in vitro studies will be conducted to determine production practices affecting fecal shedding of E. coli and Salmonella.
