Chicken Farmers of Canada’s AMU magazine is now available

Date: January 17, 2018

The first edition of CFC’s AMU magazine, AMU Strategy: A Prescription for Change, is available electronically as well as in print!

The magazine is a tool developed to support the implementation of CFC’s Responsible AMU Strategy which seeks to answer the public health threat of AMR, to maintain consumer confidence, and to provide our customers a sustainable means of meeting government and consumer expectations – while protecting animal health.

Chicken Farmers of Canada recently announced our antimicrobial use strategy, which eliminates the preventive use of Category II antimicrobials by the end of 2018, and sets a goal to eliminate the preventive use of Category III antibiotics by the end of 2020. This strategy builds on the industry’s elimination of the preventive use of Category I antibiotics in 2014.

The AMU strategy focusses on elimination of the preventative use of antibiotics of human importance, while maintaining antibiotics to treat disease.
