Improving disease identification, treatment, & antibiotic stewardship in livestock production

August 18, 2023

1:30 pm – 2:45 pm
Location: Webinar

There is growing scrutiny over the use of antibiotics in livestock farming in recent years as antimicrobial resistance has become a modern-day global health crisis. However, the continuing challenge facing proponents of strong antibiotic stewardship in livestock production is to effectively identify and treat animals in a targeted manner without causing undue risk to animal welfare and food safety. In this webinar, we’ll be joined by researchers who are leading efforts to assist livestock farmers and veterinarians to better identify, diagnose, and treat sick animals with the goal of improving farm efficiency and antibiotic stewardship. This webinar is brought to you by the iAMResponsibleTM Project, a nationwide team of researchers and extension experts working to develop and deliver effective outreach on antimicrobial resistance for diverse audiences.
