The present paper reports on the antibiotic resistance of E. coli isolated from Danish piglets and calves in 1987-1988, and compares the results with similar investigations performed during the periods 1971-1972 and 1977-1978. Rectal swabs from 52 piglets and from 78 calves were examined. All the animals studied harboured resistant E. coli. This is a significant increase compared to the previously conducted investigations. The number of strains having three or more resistance markers did not… CONTINUE READING
