Webinar: FDA’s New Rules for Use of Antibiotics in Food Animals
On Dec. 11, 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced important steps to ensure the judicious use of antibiotics in food animals as one approach to addressing antimicrobial resistance in human medicine.
In an effort to clarify what this ruling means to livestock producers and other industry professionals, members of the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Illinois offered a webinar on January 28, 2014 to address the new rules.
The discussion covered what the new steps mean to the livestock industry, what they don't mean, and how producers and others should respond. The webinar was presented by professor emeritus James Pettigrew, Extension swine veterinarian Larry Firkins, and professor Hans Stein.
