CRAN8ROOK, B.C MIXED CATTLE SALE P relying on antibiotics, espe- cially for trying to prevent diseases and growth promo- ion. He said that many animal: diseases in Canada are not controlled and nentioned swine dysentery and outbreaks of getting worse tiian ever before oecause farmers and their vets arc relying too heavily on anti- biotics and neglecting essential controls around (he farm. The main problem with using antibiotics is that the bacteria often quickly develop resistance to the antibiotics. This resistance, which can of- ten be transferred to other strains of b'acteria. can make it impossible to use common anti- biotics when there really is a need, such as during a serious outbreak of a disease. Since many of the antibiotics is to treat infections. Yet with animals, fantastically large qnantites of antibiotics arc still added routinely to animal feeds to promote growth or try and prevent disease outbreaks. Annually in the U.S., somo 2.7 million pounds of antibiotics a e added to animal feeds to i stimulate growth. Comparable amounts arc believed to used in Canada. Dr. Barnum said in an inter- view use of antibiotics should he restricted to use by veter- inarians on prescription. Tnera are enough vets across Canada, lie added, to make it feasible. Rarnum said, on the posi- tive side, that studies'strongly suggest minimizing the use of antibiotics will eventually re- verse the resistance trend, I lowing bacteria which are sen- sitive to antibiotics to return and be controlled by existing drugs. He noted that uitli humans, there is Ihc danger that anti- biotics led lo animals will re- main in tbe meat or milk and will eithe- cause allergic reac- contimies lo escalate, (tie auti-! biotic which works today may j become useless almost over- niaht.
