Research Project: INCIDENCE & ANTIMICROBIAL SUSCEPTIBILITY OF FOODBORNE (SALMONELLA & CAMPYLOBACTER) & COMMENSAL BACTERIA FROM THE NAHMS FEEDLOT CATTLE STUDY

Location: Bacterial Epidemiology and Antimicrobial Resistance

Project Number: 6612-32000-005-04
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Sep 09, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2013

Objective:
Determine the incidence and antimicrobial resistance of Salmonella, Campylobacter, E. coli, enterococcus, and C. difficile from feedlot cattle in the United States.

Approach:
Fecal samples will be sampled by cultural microbiological techniques to determine bacterial presence. Sensititre microdilution plates will be used to determine antimicroibial resistance.
