Abstract

Microbial analysis of waste effluents from dairy farm business disclosed the presence of gram positive and gram-negative bacterium. Higher proportions of E.coli was mostly discovered in milk and food waste than cheese and butter effluent. There is important distinction in variety of microorganism colonies among farm waste outflows. Some strains of E.coli are morbific and might cause serious health problems for humans by direct or indirect waste like through water bodies into which waste outflow is poured.
