Researchers Need Producer Input on Antibiotic Use

Producers are being asked to provide input on their experiences of livestock raised without antibiotics, "no-not ever" production programs and the impact on animal health and welfare.

Demand for poultry and livestock raised without the use of antibiotics is growing in the U.S., but there are few data available regarding the association between raised without antibiotic claims and animal health and welfare. Our team has developed a survey to assess opinions and experiences of raised without antibiotics programs in animal agriculture and their relationship to animal health and welfare.

The survey is intended for individuals who are actively involved with commercial poultry and livestock production systems, regardless of whether or not you currently are involved in a raised without antibiotics program/system,

The survey is completely anonymous and confidential; no data about individual participants are being recorded. We would appreciate your participation in this 15 minute survey.

Because these production systems necessitate antimicrobials to keep animals healthy and maintain productivity, rising incomes in transitioning countries are effectively driving an increase in antimicrobial consumption and thereby antimicrobial resistance. Meanwhile, multiresistant ARBs have been isolated in food animals ...
