Animal antibiotic stewardship workshop

In response to studies showing that antibiotic resistance can spread through the food supply, the FDA has made some recent policy decisions about the use of antibiotics in livestock rearing. A public meeting will be held by the FDA on September 30, 2015, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Jefferson Auditorium, 14th and Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20201.

The Farm Foundation is hosting twelve workshops to discuss antimicrobial stewardship in livestock in order to help livestock producers, their feed suppliers and veterinarians to better understand recent U.S. FDA rule changes. One of these workshops will be held on October 6th 2015 at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine.

The FDA is hoping to get farmers to use antibiotics only when medically necessary.
