Improving disease identification, treatment, & antibiotic stewardship in livestock production


Improving disease identification, treatment, & antibiotic stewardship in livestock production

Watch the Recording!

There is growing scrutiny over the use of antibiotics in livestock farming in recent years as antimicrobial resistance has become a modern-day global health crisis. However, the continuing challenge facing proponents of strong antibiotic stewardship in livestock production is to effectively identify and treat animals in a targeted manner without causing undue risk to animal welfare and food safety. In this webinar, we’ll be joined by researchers who are leading efforts to assist livestock farmers and veterinarians to better identify, diagnose, and treat sick animals with the goal of improving farm efficiency and antibiotic stewardship. This webinar is brought to you by the iAMResponsibleTM Project, a nationwide team of researchers and extension experts working to develop and deliver effective outreach on antimicrobial resistance for diverse audiences.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters include:

  • Tami Brown-Brandl, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • J. Dustin Loy, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • Daryl Nydam, Cornell University
  • Mara Zelt (moderator), University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page. Find out more about this webinar and future webinars by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC).
