One Health Series:
Everyone's Responsibility

Antibiotics, when used properly, keep humans and animals healthy. Here's how the nation's pig farmers practice good stewardship.

Farmers and ranchers spend each day giving their animals proper nutrition, shelter and care. But when animals get sick, they call the veterinarian.

Liz Wagstrom, chief veterinarian with the National Pork Producers Council (NPPC), says veterinarians care for animals in the same way that doctors care for patients. Sometimes they must rely on antibiotics to relieve suffering.

Antibiotics use has sparked debate in recent years as resistance problems rise. The National Institute for Animal Agriculture (NIAA) is among the organizations supporting a One Health solution – where human and animal health professions work together to stem the problem.

Wagstrom says resistance is a topic of concern, but its causes are often misunderstood – with agriculture often getting more than its fair share of the blame.Read more HERE.
