ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE AND DAIRY MANURE SYSTEMS
Oliver, Jason; Gooch, Curt
ARB are bacteria that have the ability to resist the effects of an antibiotic. They are naturally occurring, and can be found in dairy manure (See Fact Sheet 2.A.). Phenotypic [i.e. by growth patterns] or genotypic [i.e. by presence and/or expression of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs)] determinations are used to verify ARB.
