Antibiotic resistance is a serious threat to livestock and human health

For many years, antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) have been widely used in animal production to boost the performance of livestock. Although antibiotics can save lives, this excessive use in animal agriculture has contributed to the development and spread of antibiotic resistance in both animals and humans. As a result, their use has been restricted in several regions and alternatives are now urgently needed to promote the health and productivity of livestock in a sustainable way.
