Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify the profile of antibiotic resistance among E. coli O26, O103 and O145 in two cohorts of Scottish beef cattle on two farms and to determine whether there is an association between resistant phenotypes and the genotypic PFGE patterns to suggest clonality among resistant strains.
