Global map of antibiotic consumption in livestock predicts rising levels over next 15 years

An international team of researchers has recently published a global map of antibiotic consumption in livestock, alongside their predictions for rising levels of antibiotic usage over the next 15 years.

Reducing the use of antibiotics in pig A.I. with antimicrobial peptides

Researchers have found a way to reduce the use of antibiotics in pigs by the use of antimicrobial peptides. Bacteria possess a very high degree of adaptability, which can lead to an increased resistance to antibiotics.  This can pose a particular problem for artificial insemination with sperm, as is used today routinely for assisted reproduction in pig production worldwide,...
