Bovine shedding of fecal bacteria

We found a large temporal variation in shedding of fecal bacteria.

Bovine shedding of fecal bacteria

By screening of the fecal microbiota from more than 300 animals collected over a 10 years period we found that there were large yearly fluctuations in the fecal microbiota. We also found years that were associated with a higher probability of pathogen shedding. This knowledge will be important for future evaluation of pathogen contamination in food production.
