RDAR makes $630,060 Investment in Antimicrobial Research to Support Livestock Producers
Results Driven Agriculture Research (RDAR) is investing $630,060 to support the collection of antimicrobial use (AMU) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) data from Alberta and Canadian cattle feedlots. This study will improve animal health and antimicrobial stewardship by understanding AMU trends and guiding management practices in feedlots.
“This research will have practical value for Alberta’s feedlots, supporting sound management and increasing the competitiveness and profitability of our industry globally. It will also go a long way to assure our consumers and create confidence that beef cattle producers are not only producing high-quality beef but are doing it in a sustainable manner that places human and environmental health on a high priority.”
Clinton Dobson, RDAR Director of Research
