Debunking Antibiotic Myths

The U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, funded in part by the beef checkoff, recently hosted desk-side briefings with major media outlets in New York City and Washington, D.C. to combat myths about overuse of antibiotics in livestock production and explain how careful farmers and ranchers are in targeting antibiotic use. One of the results was a July 11 story on NPR.com, “Are Antibiotics on the Farm Risky Business?,” which offered a balanced look at antibiotic use, including a USFRA comparison chart of antibiotic use in food animals and people.
