Driven by the increasing awareness of antibiotic resistance and its link to food animal production and the ever growing demand for meat and poultry products raised without antibiotics, The Pew Campaign on Human Health and Industrial Farming, in partnership with the American Academy of Pediatrics, is hosting a Supermoms Against Superbugs Advocacy Day on May 15 in Washington, D.C. to celebrate and unite individuals across America working to preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics for their children and families. http://www.saveantibiotics.org/moms/MothersDay.html
Dr. Whisnant of Rain Crow Ranch has always been an advocate for wise and discriminate use of antibiotics. She will be participating in this Washingon event. These supermoms will include chefs, ediatricians, farmers, veterinarians,and moms who share a particular interest in the issue.
At Rain Crow we raise our animals without the use of antibiotics and have first hand experinence in how it can work. Follow us on twitter and facebook as we travel to to Washington for this event
