Washington--Antibiotic-resistant infections can be prevented in many ways and a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report focused on ways to do that. But a lot of the news coverage focused on just a small subchapter of that report. South Dakota rancher Josh Geigle said farmers and ranchers are getting unfair blame in a recent Newsline report.
“The report is over 100 pages and maybe three or four pages talk about antibiotics used on farms and ranches with food animals,” said Geigle. He went on to point out that people should be cautious when they hear information about this report, as there may be more to it than what’s being reported.
