Antibiotic Stewardship Within U.S. Poultry Production

Updated research, supported by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, has been released quantifying the U.S. poultry industry's on-farm antibiotic use. The new report adds data from 2022 to the previously published peer-reviewed reports covering the use of antibiotics from 2013 through 2022 for U.S. broiler chickens and turkeys and from 2016-2022 for U.S. layer chickens. The data are collected, analyzed and published under the research direction of Dr. Randall Singer, DVM, Ph.D., of Mindwalk Consulting Group, LLC and the University of Minnesota.

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

The data collected through the voluntary participation of U.S. poultry companies demonstrate a commitment to antibiotic stewardship and 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, especially those considered "medically important" to human health and keeping poultry flocks healthy.
