Free Panel to Discuss Antibiotics and Animals
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/16/2016

Antibiotic use in agriculture is an issue consumers have become more concerned with in recent years. Through a panel that brings together veterinarians, researchers and agriculture professionals from both organic and conventional farms, participants can ask questions and gain a balanced view on the topic.

The panel discussion, which is free and open to students and the public, will take place March 1 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison at 6:30 p.m. Organizers say the public is encouraged to come with questions about the food in your fridge, how it was produced and how antibiotics play a role in the food system.

"We are excited to bring this new event to campus and hope that students will come take advantage of many different expert opinions on the topic of antibiotic usage," said Brad Jaeger, UW-Madison student majoring in Agricultural Economics and Agronomy.

Panelists include Mark Cook, Melissa Haag, Sarah Slaby and Shelly Mayer. Bryant Gill, the Assistant Farm Director at Mid-West Family Marketing will moderate the panel.

Each panelist brings an expert opinion on the topic of antibiotic usage through their farm, research and veterinary experience.
