Antibiotic Bills on California Governor’s Desk


Bills look at antibiotic use in both humans and farm animals.

The following article is from the NAFB News Service:

California lawmakers have sent the state’s governor two bills regarding antibiotic use in humans and farm animals.  The bills would prohibit the use of antibiotics in farm animals as growth enhancers and establish programs to ensure responsible use of antibiotics in humans, according to Meatingplace.  

The legislation was introduced by California State Senator Jerry Hill because, as he says, widespread use of antibiotics has increased resistance to infections.  Hill added “prohibiting their use as growth promoters and making sure there is veterinarian oversight are common sense measures to reduce antibiotic resistance.”
