California is the first state in the nation to restrict the use of antibiotics in healthy farm animals.

Citing an "urgent public health problem," Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday made California the first state in the nation to restrict the use of antibiotics in healthy farm animals and prohibit their use to promote the growth of livestock.

Currently, many antibiotics are available without a prescription from a veterinarian. The new law, which takes effect on Jan. 1, 2018, requires a prescription based on a veterinarian’s judgment that the antibiotics are medically necessary.

The new state law is tougher than federal law in prohibiting a regular pattern of use of antibiotics as a preventative measure to farm animal herds. There must be an elevated risk to justify using it with animals that are not sick.
