Antimicrobial resistance in mastitis-causing pathogens: Klebsiella
Antimicrobial resistance is an important issue on dairy operations. People in our communities expect farmers to decrease use of antimicrobial on dairy farms. Although, there is not conclusive data about the relationships between AMR development in animal pathogens, the farm environment, and human health, we need to provide adequate safety measures to reduce the likelhood of AMR. Particularly, dairies could introduce procedures for staff who work closely with cattle—dairy workers—to decrease any chance of transmission of animal pathogens carrying AMR genes to those workers.
