Antibiotic use in food-animal production is the focus of a White Paper recently released by the National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA).

The symposium Antibiotic Use in Food Animals: A Dialogue for a Common Purpose was developed by the National Institute for Animal Agriculture and conducted October 26?27, 2011, in Chicago, Illinois.

The White Paper is a summary of science-based information delivered by the 13 human health and animal health speakers and symposium participants.

The White Paper provides science-based information regarding the use of antibiotics in food-animal production, human health implications relative to antibiotic use and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in livestock. A significant portion of the White Paper addresses the controversial topic of antimicrobial resistance.
