Abstract: Campylobacter bacteria were frequently found in healthy Ontario sheep. Although 41.5% of C. jejuni strains were resistant to at least one antibiotic, resistance to the antibiotics most important for human health was infrequent. No link between antimicrobial use and antibiotic resistance was discovered.
