We sequenced wastewater effluent from the Agricultural Research Council-Animal Production in South Africa that conducts studies on livestock health and farm ecology. Thauera, Oscillibacter, and Pseudomonas were the most abundant genera within the community. Thirty-one different antibiotic resistance genes were identified, 10 of which are associated with tetracycline resistance.
