Superbugs take flight from cattle farms

Being downwind of 50,000 cows is not only bad for your nose; it could also be bad for your health.Gusts of wind blowing through high-density cattle facilities send veterinary antibiotics and drug-resistant bacteria flying, which could spur difficult-to-treat infections in nearby communities. To understand a possible airborne threat, researchers led by environmental toxicologist Philip Smith of Texas Tech University in Lubbock collected breeze-blown particles up- and downwind of 10 high-density cattle facilities around Lubbock. Like many places where these crowded cattle yards exist, the Lubbock area is dry and experiences dust storms.
