Anti-Antimicrobials In New York State?


The New York State Senate introduced state legislation that would

make it a misdemeanor to use non-therapeutic antimicrobials in cattle, poultry, sheep, swine or any other animals raised for human food consumption, including animals raised to provide non-meat products like milk and eggs.

How will banning non-therapeutic antimicrobials impact animal agriculture? Such legislation in a major dairy producing state is sure to face strong resistance.
