U of I Webinar Will Explain FDA Ruling on Antibiotic Use in Livestock

On Dec. 11, 2013, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced important steps to ensure the judicious use of antibiotics in food animals as one approach to addressing antimicrobial resistance in human medicine.
In an effort to clarify what this ruling means to livestock producers and other industry professionals, members of the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Illinois will offer a webinar to address the new rules on Tuesday, Jan. 28 from noon to 1 p.m.
The discussion will cover what the new steps mean to the livestock industry, what they don't mean, and how producers and others should respond. The webinar will be presented by professor emeritus James Pettigrew and professor Hans Stein.
