Viable count of Efm4, Efs2 and transconjugants in feceal samples of growing pigs. (a): The growth kinetics of donor strain Efm4 in Efm4 group, Efm4+ Efs2 group and FSBM group; (b): The growth kinetics of receiver strain Efs2 in Efs2 group, Efm4+ Efs2 group and FSBM group; (c): The growth kinetics of transconjugants in Efm4+ Efs2 group and FSBM group. In both Efm4+ Efs2 group and FSBM group, the transconjugants were only detected in one pig out of six. Results from fecal samples obtained at 24 h before the experiment are plotted as day zero. FSBM, fermented soybean meal; Efm4, vanA positive strain Enterococcus faecium Efm4; Efs2, chloramphenicol-resistant strain Enterococcus faecalis Efs2
