Scientists from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, have found a new antibiotic-resistant gene in the bacteria of feedlot water bowls used in cows and bulls farms. This gene can inactivate an entire class of drugs called macrolides often used to treat tonsillitis in humans and bovine respiratory disease in cows. This gene is commonly found in the microbiome of many farm animals, but not until now its dangerous resistant properties have been identified.
More than 1.2 million human deaths worldwide are attributed to antibiotic resistance, and one of the leading drivers is the overuse of antibiotics in factory farms.
