Abstract

We report the prevalence, concentrations, and strain diversity of Escherichia coli O157 shed by sheep fed on root crops during a winter period in northeast Scotland. E. coli O157 was isolated on 6 farms from 14 studied during January to March 2005. The individual sheep prevalence was 5.8% and concentration excreted was
