To help stop antimicrobial resistance, many consumers are no longer purchasing meat from companies that over-use antibiotics. Producers, in turn, are forced reduce their antibiotics usage.

At the same time, without antibiotics, the diseases will spread uncontrolled.

US BIOLOGIC is a One Health company that supports the use of a variety of techniques to reduce the need for antibiotics, with orally delivered vaccines being a key opportunity to reduce antimicrobial resistance.

These safe, effective, and cost-efficient vaccines can limit a range of diseases, such as coccidiosis, while at the same time reduce the need for antibiotics.
