  • The reduction of foodborne pathogens in cattle destined for human consumption will require knowledge of the factors that impact the carriage and shedding of these organisms. The objective of this work was to investigate the effects of heat and handling stress levels on the fecal shedding of Escherichia coli O157:H7 and generic E. coli by feedlot cattle. In year 1, 128 feedlot heifers were evaluated for heat tolerance five times per week during the 84-day finishing period from May through August… CONTINUE READING
