Abstract

During the last few years, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) ST398 has been isolated frequently from livestock, especially from pigs and to a lesser extent from cattle and poultry. To gain insight into the distribution of this bacterium in pig farms versus multispecies farms, 30...

Abstract

Background: The role of general practitioners (GPs) as reservoir and potential source for Staphylococcus aureus (SA) transmission is unknown. Our primary objective was to evaluate the prevalence of SA and community-acquired methicillin resistant SA (CA-MRSA) carrier status (including spa typing)...

Abstract

Aims: To explore antibacterial activities of coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) from teat apices of dairy cows towards mastitis-causing pathogens. Methods and Results: Of 254 CoNS, 38 displayed bacteriocin-like activity after a first screening. Seven of these strains displayed activity against ...

Abstract

Objectives: This study aimed at investigating bovine non-Staphylococcus aureus staphylococci for their role as a potential reservoir for methicillin resistance. Methods: Nasal swab samples were collected from 150 veal calves on 15 veal farms, 100 dairy cows on 10 dairy farms and 100 beef cows on 10 ...

Abstract

In dairy farms, antimicrobial drugs are frequently used for treatment of (sub)clinical mastitis. Determining the antimicrobial susceptibility of mastitis pathogens is needed to come to a correct use of antimicrobials. Strains of Staphylococcus aureus (n=768), Streptococcus uberis (n=939), ...

Abstract

Background Staphylococcus aureus is a common bacterium usually found on skin and mucous membranes of warm blooded animals. Resistance in S. aureus has been increasingly reported though depending on the clonal lineage. Indeed, while hospital acquired (HA)-methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) are...

Abstract

Ten non-motile, Gram-stain-positive, coagulase-negative staphylococci were isolated from bovine milk and teat apices. All isolates were catalase-positive, with anteiso-C15:0, iso-C15:0, anteiso-C17:0, iso-C17:0 and C18:0 as predominant fatty acids and diphosphatidylglycerol and phosphatidylglycerol ...

Abstract

Coagulase-negative staphylococci are the main source of bovine mastitis in 71 heifers from Flemish dairy farms. The epidemiology and risk factors are discussed with special attention to udder quarters and individual heifer characteristics. A strategic approach for a problem farm is outlined. A...

Abstract

Risk factors for intramammary infections caused by coagulase-negative staphylococci, contagious major pathogens and environmental major pathogens in early lactating heifers were evaluated at the herd, heifer and quarter levels. In total, 764 quarters of 191 dairy heifers in 20 randomly selected...
