The diversity of viruses in slurries from dairy farming remains largely uncharacterized. Here we report viral diversity found in cattle slurry from a dairy farm in the East Midlands in the United Kingdom. The same slurry tank was sampled in three consecutive years, and the viral fraction was isolated and sequenced.
