Objective
Determine the equivalence of the following aggregate sampling methods: 2 pooled pen-floor fecal samples, 2 boot-socks, and 2 sets of pen-rope-samples for: 1) Detecting prevalence of Salmonella enterica 2) Characterizing the predominant AMR phenotypes of Salmonella and E. coli 3) Characterizing the effects of E.coli isolate sample size (1 to 5) for each of these aggregate sample collection methods on the E. coli AMR phenotypes that are detected.
