Farm management and longitudinal data on antibiotic use and antibiotic resistant E. coli for 53 dairy farms, South West England, 2017-2019

This dataset contains over 4000 faecally-contaminated environmental samples collected over 2 years across 53 dairy farms in England. The samples were analysed for E. coli resistance to amoxicillin, streptomycin, cefalexin, tetracycline and ciprofloxacin and detection of resistant strains is presented in the dataset as a binary result, along with mechanisms of resistance to third generation cephalosporins where relevant. In addition there is comprehensive farm management data including antibiotic usage data.

Provenance & quality

1. Records of samples taken from 53 farms including date, type and descriptive location of sample. 2. Records 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. 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.
