Table 1 Cleaning and disinfection (C&D) protocols carried out at the start of the longitudinal study (conventional C&D) followed by C&D with 3 C&D protocols (A, B and C) carried out during 5 successive production cycles in each of the broiler houses or pig nursery units at the pilot farms

From: Repeated disinfectant use in broiler houses and pig nursery units does not affect disinfectant and antibiotic susceptibility in Escherichia coli field isolates
