Addressing antibiotic resistance in human medicine requires a comprehensive approach and cooperation among physicians, veterinarians, policymakers and government agencies assigned to oversee this complicated issue. Banning antibiotic use in livestock would not solve the problem of human resistance and might have other negative consequences for public health.
You can be sure that farmers, ranchers and veterinarians are aware of the concerns about antibiotics and work constantly to improve our knowledge about how to help food animals remain healthy. When antibiotics are required, we use only what is needed, when it is needed, to make sure animals don't suffer from illness.
Healthy animals are the key to healthy, humane and safe food.
