Development of an experimental model to assess the ability of Escherichia coli O157:H7-inoculated fecal pats to mimic a super shedder within a feedlot environment.

Abstract

This study was conducted to develop an experimental model that could assess the ability of Escherichia coli O157:H7-inoculated fecal pats to mimic a super shedder (>10(4) CFU/g of feces) within a feedlot environment. The day before the study began, 48 steers that had been negative for E. coli O157:H7 in feces for three consecutive weeks were sorted into… (More)
