Minimum use of antibiotics - chicken and turkey

Level: Spearhead

Increased antibiotic resistance implies a large threat to global health and constitutes an important sustainability challenge. Vast use of antibiotics in animal production systems correlates to the development of antibiotic resistance. The use of antibiotics in animal production systems should therefore be held at a minimum. The use of antibiotics for growth promoting purposes is prohibited within the EU. Treatment with antibiotics should not be given to healthy animals to prevent disease.
