    “On the subject of environmental survival of MAP, the 1944 publication by Lovell et al. has become a classic reference. A series of studies using naturally infected bovine feces were conducted in which the infected fecal matter was exposed to a variety of natural conditions such as freezing, drying, sunlight, changes in ambient temperature, and rain, with regular attempts to re-isolate MAP. In general they found survival of MAP in feces kept outdoors up to 152 to 246 days depending on specific conditions.”
