Livestock have been implicated as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance (AMR) that can spread to humans. Close proximity and ecological interfaces involving livestock have been posited as risk factors for the transmission of AMR. In spite of this, there are sparse data and limited agreement on the transmission dynamics that occur.
