Management data and antibiotic resistant E. coli detection in pre-weaned calves on 51 dairy farms, South West England, 2017-2018

This dataset consists of faecally-contaminated samples taken from the environment around pre-weaned calves on 51 farms in South-West England during 2017/2018 and is a subset of a larger dataset investigating antibiotic resistance in E. coli across 53 farms. The samples were analysed for presence of E. coli resistant to amoxicillin, streptomycin, cephalexin, tetracycline and/or ciprofloxacin. Management factors deemed related to pre-weaned calves are included, including antibiotic usage data at farm level.

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 51 farms including date, type, eartag numbers of animals in the immediate environment, and descriptive location of sample. 2. Results of microbiological analyses of the samples to identify E. coli resistant to amoxicillin, cephalexin, tetracycline, ciprofloxacin and/or streptomycin. 3. For samples where E. coli resistant to cephalexin were detected, results of laboratory testing for resistance mechanism. 3. For samples where E. coli resistant to cephalexin was detected, results of laboratory testing for resistance mechanism. 4. Questionnaires administered to farmers between Jan 2017 and Jan 2019. These collected demographic and farm management data at the start and end of the data collection periods for each farm, as well as questionnaires around choices of antibiotic administered during the data collection period at the convenience of the participants. 5. Prescription medication records acquired from veterinary practices and farm records. All calculations and data entry were checked for errors before data was accepted.
