As the distance between farmer and consumer closes around the world, we must continually adapt our methods to meet the ever-growing demand for high-quality, safe food.

In the webinar, ‘The Path of Least Resistance’, we took a dive into the world of antibiotics, specifically how they have impacted and will continue to impact the agriculture industry.

Existing opportunities

The key speaker, Dr Richard Murphy, explained why we should worry about antibiotic resistance, where we are now with restrictions on antibiotics in livestock health and what opportunities exist for your operations.

Our 3 key takeaways were:

 

  1. Worldwide, scientific evidence indicates an overall decline in the total stock of antibiotic effectiveness; resistance to all first-line and last-resort antibiotics is rising.
  2. The livestock and poultry industries are not only facing increasing scrutiny from regulatory bodies such as the FDA and EFSA, but, worldwide, meat processors are starting to demand change.
  3. Alternative growth promotion strategies are available that utilise strategic nutritional management practices as part of an antibiotic-free strategy for animal production.
