Farm management and longitudinal data on antibiotic use and antibiotic resistant E. coli for individual heifers on 37 dairy farms, South West England, 2018

This dataset represents a cohort of heifers followed from birth to 18 months or first pregnancy on 37 farms in the South West of England. Faecally-contaminated environmental samples were collected over 2 years and the samples analysed for E. coli resistance to amoxicillin, cefalexin and tetracycline with detection of resistant strains presented in the dataset as a binary result. Farm-level antibiotic usage data is also given.

Provenance & quality

This dataset is a subset of the "Farm management and longitudinal data on antibiotic use and antibiotic resistant E. coli for 53 dairy farms, South West England, 2017-2019" dataset (https://catalogue.ceh.ac.uk/documents/c9bc537a-d1c5-43a0-b146-42c25d4e8160) and comprises of 1. Records of samples taken from 37 farms including date, eartag numbers of animals in the immediate environment, sample type and descriptive location. 2. Records of microbiological analyses of the samples to identify those containing E. coli resistant to amoxicillin, cephalexin and/or tetracycline. 3. Prescription medication records acquired from veterinary practices and farm records. All calculations and data entry were checked for errors before data was accepted.
