Staying Tuned Into Antibiotics and Consumers

What are the issues with antibiotics in agriculture and how do farmers learn about consumer views?

Consumers are concerned about antibiotic resistance and are demanding action from farmers and ranchers. Physicians worry that antibiotic over use in human health will also be impacted. To help understand the issues, researchers and experts from all aspects of human and animal health came together to continue the dialog and make plans for change around the use of antibiotics.

Under the umbrella of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture, sessions [see agenda] were presented to share the various points of view and offer research to help set develop a strategy on how antibiotics should and should not be used.

The following episodes are a selection of the conference presentations. More can be found at
