  • Debate Continues Over Antibiotic Use in Cattle - From the Beef Blog, Purdue Phil shares a post made by Stephen B. Blezinger, Ph.D., PAS, in Cattle Today - "Livestock producers have fed antibiotics to promote growth to food animals for years. Over recent years, scientists have raised concerns that, in conjunction with the excessive use of antibiotics in humans, the use of sub-therapeutic levels of antibiotics in food animals could lead to serious health risks for people."
