Scottish Agricultural College
Start date
End date
This project will study the prevalence of non-VTEC E.coli, which are potential human pathogens, in the faeces of Scottish beef cattle. This builds onto an existing project funded by the Wellcome Trust through their IPRAVE (International Partnership Research Award in Veterinary Epidemiology) study. This research will lead to a better understanding of the relative potential risk of these organisms entering the Scottish Food Chain.
