Interpretive Summary: Bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC) outbreaks in feed yard cattle are the primary drivers of disease-related antibiotic treatments and have a global impact estimated to be greater than $USD 3 billion/year. We present sixteen closed genomes of Pasteurella multocida and their antimicrobial resistance profiles isolated from calves with BRDC and pen mates not showing signs of BRDC. These data that we release to the public can be used by researchers to improve their understanding of how Pasteurella multocida genomic factors affect antimicrobial resistance and their role in the development of respiratory disease in cattle. Since Pasteurella multocida is associated with disease in other livestock species, companion animals, and in rare cases, humans, this data set may be relevant to understanding Pasteurella multocida infections in these species too.

Technical Abstract: Pasteurella multocida is an animal-associated Gram-negative member of the Pasteurellaceae family. It is an opportunistic pathogen and is one of the principal bacterial species contributing to bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC) in feedlot cattle. We present 16 closed genome sequences and antibiograms of isolates cultured from calves exhibiting clinical signs of BRDC and from control calves not showing signs of BRDC.
