Did you know?

Antibiotics are medications that fight bacterial infections. They are used in cattle to prevent, control and treat disease. These drugs are very important to ensuring animal health and experts agree their use has contributed to improved food safety over the years.

  • Farmers and ranchers recognize antibiotics must be used carefully in order to preserve their future effectiveness for our families and our animals.
  • Farmers and ranchers avoid using antibiotics that are important to human medicine and have invested in research and education programs designed to help us continuously improve how we use antibiotics.
  • Farmers and ranchers have no reason to overuse antibiotics but rather every reason to use them as selectively as possible. For one, it’s the law, but antibiotics also are a costly input for the small business men and women who raise cattle for beef.
