The demand for antibiotic-free meat is growing.
Consumers are demanding greater transparency in how and where their food is raised. Food giants McDonalds, Subway, TFI and Costco have announced antibiotic-free, ionophore-free and/or antibiotic reduction initiatives in their supply chains. The McDonalds announcement alone will impact the supply chain of 2.6bn tons of beef per year.
For producers the time for change is now.
Consumer and regulatory changes will reverberate throughout the supply chain, and meat producers will need to adopt new antibiotic-free product practices or face the prospect of being excluded from the market.
The argument has been made that by removing antibiotics, production efficiencies will be reduced or farm economics decline.
ProAgni has busted this myth.
ProAgni was first to market with ProTect®, a trialled and tested antibiotic-free, ionophore-free (Bovatec-free & Rumensin-free) feed that substantially improves farm economics. Our products have delivered 20%+ improvements in feed conversion and average daily gains which translates to improvements in profitability.
Antibiotics still have a role to play.
Sometimes antibiotics are necessary to treat sick animals. There is no dispute that antibiotics can be an appropriate treatment for sick or injured animals. However with improved feed technology, producers do not need to use prophylactic antibiotics as growth promotants or blanket distribution to livestock as a preventative economic measure.
Overuse is having real impacts on the effectiveness of antibiotics in human and animal health.
Is your livestock business ready for this change?
