The reduction of antibiotic usage, is first and foremost a human health issue. Preventing bacteria from becoming resistant is essential to ensure that these key medicines stay available to save lives. As the livestock sector is seen as a reservoir of resistant bacteria, caused by antibiotic usage, there is both legislative and societal pressure on the sector to improve its ‘act’ . Producing chicken with less or no antibiotics is the target, at the same time it is essential to keep the birds healthy. This is a quest for many poultry professionals all around the globe. This webinar and our 3 expert speakers aim to give some practical insight in current trends and share their antibiotic free experience. The topic will be viewed from a veterinary angle and a nutritional angle, as speakers will address solutions how to tackle gut health without the use of antibiotics and with the use of alternatives.
