Why I Want to Continue the Conversation About Responsible Antibiotic Use

As I shared with you at the beginning of the month, I had the opportunity to join the National Pork Board in hosting an important discussion about responsible antibiotic use on the farm and what it means at every end of the food supply chain – from farmers to consumers. Broadcast live from the National Pork Industry Forum in Atlanta, our 30-minute conversation brought together industry experts in retail, farming and animal health to talk about the real change happening on pig farms across the country.

You can watch a three-minute compilation video with key highlights here.

Our discussion was a real eye opener for me and one I want to keep moving forward. I learned how much work the pork industry has done to promote antibiotic stewardship through research, education and outreach and how committed they are to producing the highest quality pork for today's consumers. I think the National Pork Board's John Johnson put it best when he said, "We want the healthiest pigs possible because healthy pigs make for safe food."
