FDA Ruling on Antibiotics for Livestock
In case you haven’t heard, January 1, 2017, will not only bring a new year, but it will also bring FDA regulations on antibiotic medicated livestock feeds. Certain medicated livestock feeds contain antibiotics that are of the same medicinal family as are used by humans. The goal is to try to prevent humans from developing resistance to the antibiotics that are used by both humans and livestock. It will not make it impossible nor unfeasible for producers to acquire the products they need, but will require an additional step in doing so.
