ANTIBIOTICS HELP REDUCE THE CONSUMPTION OF NATURAL RESOURCES

Responsible antibiotics helps keep animals and the environment healthy.

  • When left untreated, sick animals can die.
  • It would then require more animals, more food and water to produce the same amount of consumable meat.
  • With more animals to feed, more grain must be grown, which requires more fertilizer, water and acres of land.
  • Sick animals have a larger negative environmental impact, while healthy animals use fewer natural resources.
