Antibiotics vs. Antibiotic-Free Poultry: What is the Difference?
I went to the National Meeting on Poultry Health, Processing, and Live Production recently. It was held in Ocean City, and it ran through September 28 to 30. I had the privilege to listen to informative and useful talks that I believe will help me understand this industry even more.
One of the most interesting seminars had to do with antibiotic-free vs. antibiotic use in poultry. On the 28th, Dr. Randy Mitchell of Perdue Foods, LLC talked about the use of probiotics. On the 29th, Dr. David French of Sanderson Farms discussed the use of antibiotics in poultry, while Dr. Chuck Hofacre of the University of Georgia talked about raising chickens without the use of antibiotics.
