The widespread use of antibiotics in livestock production has come under increasing scrutiny in recent years. In light of shifting consumer demand and regulatory pressure, there is a clear trend to reduce or completely remove antibiotics from production.
The main driver of this trend is antimicrobial resistance: the ability of pathogenic bacteria to become resistant to one or more antibiotics can render those drugs ineffective, with profound implications for both human and animal health.
For producers looking to reduce the amount of antibiotics or adopt an antibiotic-free feeding (ABF) program, the key is to close the performance gap through a holistic approach that includes reduction of potential nutritional, physiological, and microbial challenges. A tailored combination of feed additives from BIOMIN can help you achieve your antibiotic reduction objective successfully.
