Antibiotic Use Within U.S. Poultry Production

Updated research, supported by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, has been released quantifying the U.S. poultry industry's on-farm antibiotic use, including a new section on layer production. The new report shows further improved antibiotic stewardship and commitment to disease prevention within poultry production. As part of its commitment to the transparency and sustainability of a safe food supply, the poultry industry aims to strike a balance between the responsible use of antibiotics "medically important" to human health and keeping poultry flocks healthy.

What Is the Antibiotic Use Within U.S. Poultry Production Report?

Under the research direction of Dr. Randall Singer, DVM, PhD, of Mindwalk Consulting Group, LLC, this report represents a nine-year set of data collected from 2013 to 2021 for U.S. broiler chickens and turkeys and represents a six-year set of data collected from 2016 to 2021 for layers. A prior report, covering 2013-2017, was released in August 2019. The updated report was prepared through a systematic collection of on-farm antibiotic use data to capture the disease indications and routes of administration through which antibiotics were given to the poultry.
