Addressing Antimicrobial Resistance Through Livestock Management
August 20, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
The use of antibiotics in livestock production has been scrutinized in recent years as increasing antimicrobial resistance has become a modern-day global health crisis. While the causes of antibiotic resistance are complex and no one industry or sector is entirely responsible for the conditions we face, the growing crisis has resulted in increased interest by livestock producers in identifying management practices that can reduce the need for antibiotics and the presence of resistant organisms in animal production systems.
In this webinar, we’ll be joined by representatives from multiple sectors of the livestock production industry to learn how each sector is approaching the complex problem of antibiotic resistance with management strategies to improve antimicrobial stewardship in live animal production and across the food production system.
