Bridging The Gap Between the Environment, Human and Animal Health

4/19/18 Beef Checkoff Promotional Board's One Health Initiative

The “One Health Initiative” concept has been around for more than a decade. It looks at how the environment, human and animal health all connect.

The Beef Checkoff Promotional Board, along with some of its subcontractors, are taking the initiative a step further, studying disease transmission, antibiotic and antimicrobial resistance across the food chain.

AgDay national reporter Betsy Jibben talks with Joan Ruskamp, a feedlot owner and cattle producer in Dodge, Nebraska and Dr. Eric Moore, a veterinarian who is the co-chair of the Antibiotics Council of National Institute of Animal Agriculture.

Why would you include “environment” in the title? Nothing about that showed any work on the gap between what a feedlot does and anything remotely friendly to the environment.
Just an observation, you probably shouldn’t include anything positive about the environment and images of a feedlot in the same article. The two are mutually exclusive.
