Antibiotic Alternatives for Livestock Industry
Antibiotic use in livestock is increasingly under scrutiny due to the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains in humans and animals. Livestock producers are increasingly looking for non-antibiotic alternatives to get rid of pathogens in their animals and on their farms. Furthermore, because antibiotic use is associated with growth promotion in animals, livestock producers are increasingly looking for non-antibiotic ways to promote growth in their animals. Companies at the forefront of producing non-antibiotic alternatives are poised for growth in the coming years.
