Exciting changes are underway in animal agriculture. New methods of caring for and raising animals are being implemented and new animal health and nutrition products are being developed. Together they’re preventing disease, protecting animal health and reducing the need for antibiotics.
Animal welfare, food safety and sustainability – there are good reasons animals raised for food are given antibiotics. Responsible use of antibiotics is the key, and procedures are in place to ensure there are no unsafe residues in meat, milk and eggs.
Animal antibiotics have been used by farmers for decades to make food safer and prevent animal suffering. Using them responsibly also lessens the burden on our planet.
