Abstract :

A study to investigate coliform counts in feedlot cattle water and feed rations and their association with management, climate, fecal material and water Escherichia coli O157, using a cross-sectional study design was performed. The study revealed that the coliform counts in the feed and water were not associated with prevalence of Escherichia coli O157 in cattle feces or waters.
