AIMS To compare antibiotic resistance integrons in cattle from three separate grass-fed, grain-fed and certified organic cattle production systems at slaughter. METHODS AND RESULTS In this study 198 samples from three separate cattle production systems were tested by PCR for the presence of class 1 and class 2 integrons. Integron-containing bacteria were readily isolated from pen faeces and hide samples regardless of production system. Lower numbers of integron-containing bacteria were… CONTINUE READING
