Abstract :

The prevalence and longitudinal distribution of Escherichia coli O157 in feedlot cattle and the feedlot environment are described. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) types identified in sampling of the feedlot prior to calf entry are different from the majority of types identified following calf entry and the data have supported that the incoming cattle introduced a new strain that became the predominant strain in the feedlot.
