Project: Assessment of antimicrobial use and resistance monitoring in cattle to improve surveillance systems at the herd level
01-JAN-06 – 31-MAR-07
The purpose of the project is to develop a sampling strategy which allows delineating unfavourable from favourable bovine farms in respect of their antimicrobial resistance profiles. Therefore, different parameters will be assessed to accurately measure the herd resistance profile as feasible as possible. Bacteria included in the analysis are Escherichia coli, Enterococcus species, Streptococcus species, and Pasteurellaceae.
