We verified if ceftiofur withdrawal at the hatchery decreased the prevalence of cephalosporin-resistant Escherichia coli after 12 months. Two vertical samplings were done, firstly in 2014, prior to ceftiofur withdrawal, and then in 2015, one year post-withdrawal in broiler breeders, matching fluff, meconium, chicks and broilers.
