The use of antibiotics in agriculture and its impact on antibiotic resistance in humans has received a lot of media attention over the last few years. Currently, the poultry industry manages/controls antibiotic use and feels these medications are used responsibly while the government has strict control on antibiotic approvals and their use in chicken barns. The poultry industry is actively researching the availability and efficacy of alternative ingredients and there are programs in place for broilers raised and marketed without the use of antibiotics (RWA).
New Life Mills offers a RWA (raised without antibiotics) program that is specifically designed to maximize the performance of broilers grown without the use of medications. The feeding program makes use of a very specific ingredient matrix as well as research proven additives designed to promote and enhance the health and well-being of broilers in conjunction with vaccination programs.
