Anti-microbial drugs: The myths and the facts

Amanda Nolz

Antimicrobial drugs first became available shortly after World War II. These drugs are used to produce safe, wholesome animal products for human consumption, and yet, state and federal efforts are currently working to eliminate agriculture’s use of these antimicrobial drugs.

Should animal production return to the old, pre-war system? How can we correct the myths surrounding drug use in animal agriculture? And, what should producers keep in mind when using these drugs in their operations? These questions were posed by Gordon Brumbaugh, senior veterinarian with Pfizer Animal Health at the Beef Is Our Business Summer Seminar held on July 29, 2010 in Mitchell, SD.
