 Animal Health and Nutrition Biotech Solutions to Reduce the Need for Antibiotics As the world’s population rises and the demand for high quality protein food sources grows, the pressure to increase animal meat production while reducing the risks of disease is becoming a global issue. The growing need for affordable food drives intense focus on low-cost solutions for combating animal health risks at concentrated animal feed operations, while the rising presence of antibiotic resistant strains of pathogens is a threat to human health. This event will feature speakers addressing these issues with biotech-driven solutions and provide a unique perspective on how North Carolina is playing a role in shaping the future of agri-medicine.
