FCP Webinar: Antibiotics in Animal Agriculture

Friday, April 27, 2018  Join us at 9 a.m. Pacific (10 MT, 11 CT, Noon ET)

Antibiotics in Animal Agriculture (Ag subgroup webinar)

Today’s consumers are concerned about antibiotic resistance and are asking how the use of antibiotics in food animals may affect human health.  Antibiotic resistance is a concern for both human and animal health, and everyone wants to maintain the effectiveness of these essential drugs. This webinar will help you gain a better understanding of the regulations in place for antibiotic use in food animals to ensure food safety and will address the complex issues surrounding responsible antibiotic use in animal agriculture. Learn from a professor in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences at Kansas State University and voting member of the Presidential Advisory Council on Combating Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria, Dr. Michel Apley, and family farmers, US Farmers and Ranchers Alliance board chairman, Brad Greenway and his wife Peggy, a Common Ground volunteer.

He is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology.  His practice background includes general practice in central Kansas and a feedlot consulting/contract research practice based in Colorado.  Dr. Apley works with veterinarians and producers throughout the United States concerning the use of drugs in food animals and also in the area of beef cattle health with an emphasis on feedlots.
