How to reduce Antibiotics in Poultry Production
Scope of the seminar: Antibiotics are used in livestock and poultry farming, both as a pharmaceutical product and growth promoter. The overuse of antibiotics both in humans and in animals has been linked to the higher occurrence of antibiotic resistance in bacteria which jeopardizes the efficacy of antimicrobial treatment. Essentially, antibiotic use is key to understanding efforts to curtail antibiotics in poultry.
