Following the 10th Annual NIAA Antibiotics Symposium, a team of researchers from the University of Minnesota and Kansas State University, in partnership with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Center for Veterinary Medicine (FDA-CVM), released results of a project to develop pilot systems for collecting and analyzing antimicrobial use data from U.S. beef feedlot, dairy, swine, turkey, and chicken production settings.

In a November press release announcing the publication of results, the underlying goal of the data collection projects was described as "to preserve the ability to use effective antimicrobials in the therapy of disease for both humans and animals. To ensure that antimicrobials are used responsibly and judiciously in animal agriculture it is important to fully understand how antimicrobials are currently used on-farm."

As the NIAA Antibiotics Council continues to enhance an animal agriculture industry that is aligned with judicious antibiotic use policies and practices, the results of this project will greatly affect how farmers, ranchers, and veterinarians continue to support One Health - an initiative to "forge co-equal, all inclusive collaborations between" professionals in the animal, human and environmental health spaces.
