Antimicrobial Stewardship in Agriculture: How Far Have We Come and What’s Next?
September 27, 2022
Antimicrobial Stewardship in Agriculture: How Far Have We Come and What’s Next? examined upcoming U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation changes affecting antibiotic use in livestock production. Private companies and producers are carefully considering when and how antibiotics are used in order to comply with these new restrictions to satisfy consumers’ demand for products raised with little or no antibiotics. The conversation also went beyond livestock and antibiotics to consider proper stewardship of antifungals in crop production. This Forum took place via Zoom on Tuesday, September 27, 2022, at 9 a.m. CT.
