Summary of pig production cycle, antimicrobial administration and sampling points. Faecal sampling (red arrows) was carried out from farrowing pens containing the pregnant sows only (W1), and then post-farrowing from both the sow and the nursing pigs during co-housing (W2-W4). Weaners were mixed and moved into new accommodation prior to sampling on W5 and were moved to larger accommodation for the growing/finishing period prior to sampling on W14. Samples subject to metagenomic sequencing are indicated (Meta 1 to Meta 3). No sampling was carried out on W6 due to access issues.
