Beef Industry Succeeding in Telling Story of Responsible Antibiotic UseWed, 05 May 2010 5:06:13 CDT
Today's Beef Buzz features comments from Washington with lobbyist Colin Woodall of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and antibiotic use by animal agriculture. Woodall says the tide has turned on this issue in recent months, as the livestock industry has told its story with success to lawmakers and their staff on Capitol Hill.
Woodall said that last year, the industry was losing this battle, but that with the information campaign that was put together, they have stopped New York lawmaker Louise Slaughter from being able to advance her bill that would stop non theraputic use of antibiotics in livestock. He says the key message has been that these products are used carefully, under the direction of animal health professionals and that healthy animals result in healthy food.
