Organic livestock farmers are demonstrating that it is possible (and commercially viable) to farm with less antibiotics. With the antibiotic resistance crisis predicted to kill one person every three seconds by 2050, the wider farming industry must look to and learn from these systems, and integrate existing examples of best-practice into their own operations.
The Alliance to Save our Antibiotics is a coalition of health, medical, farming, environmental and civil society organisations from across the EU. The Alliance was founded by Sustain, Compassion in World Farming and the Soil Association and is supported by the Jeremy Coller Foundation.
