Further antibiotic use
reduction will be hard
A recent report showed the U.S. poultry industry dramatically reduced its antibiotic use this decade. However, its co-author says further reduction may be
challenging.

The limiting factor

I recently interviewed Dr. Randall Singer, a professor at the University of
Minnesota's College of Veterinary Medicine, about his August 2019 report
covering on-farm antimicrobial use in the broiler and turkey industries between
2013 and 2017.
Antibiotic usage fell sharply in the study period. For example, at the end of
2017 only 17% of broiler chicks placed received antimicrobials. In 2013, about
93% received antimicrobials. This is evidence of progress toward greater stewardship of antimicrobial use.
The industry is now in a situation where it needs to find the right balance
between protecting animal health and welfare and further reducing antibiotic
use. The greatest challenge to health and welfare, Singer said, will be diseases
caused by clostridial bacteria such as necrotic enteritis. There are no effective,
non-antimicrobial treatments available for these diseases.

Incentivize drug or vaccine development?

The industry can, and does, take management and animal husbandry steps
to reduce exposure to disease challenges at every phase of the poultry supply
chain. But, a drug- or vaccine-based intervention is still needed.
Perhaps this is where the industry, or its associations, can pool its financial
resources to help solve a common problem. Vaccine and drug research and
development is prohibitively expensive. Players in the private sector will not
make an investment unless they are confident a new product will be profitable.
Maybe if the industry let its counterparts in pharmaceuticals know how important this problem is - and how much of a demand there is for a new, effective
product - it will motivate the gears of progress to turn a little more quickly. ■
