On-Farm Antimicrobial Usage Project
The first report for our Estimates of On-Farm Antimicrobial Usage project is now available for U.S. broiler chickens and turkeys. This project was supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association. We collected data from the majority of U.S. broiler chicken and turkey companies regarding their use of antimicrobials. The report includes information about the diseases for which the antimicrobials were used. Data in this report cover the period of 2013-2017, and for 2017, the data represent more than 90% of U.S. broiler chicken production and more than 80% of U.S. turkey production.
Mindwalk Consulting Group, LLC manages the collection of antimicrobial use data for the broiler chicken, turkey, layer chicken, and pig commodities. We collaborate with other groups on the collection of data for beef and dairy cattle.
