  • The FDA says 25 of 26 animal drug companies have responded to its request to phase out the use of antibiotics for growth promotion in livestock with positive written commitments.

    The FDA asked companies to stop selling antimicrobial drugs for growth promotion which was released in December. It also directs the companies to change many drugs to a status that requires veterinary oversight and consultation.

    The Animal Health Institute and Generic Animal Drug Alliance, which represent most animal drug companies, committed to the voluntary guidelines earlier this month.

  • Land trust leaders from across the country are converging on Capitol Hill on April 2.

    They will educate and engage Congressional members on key land conservation issues that support the nation in securing local economic sustainability, fresh food, clean water, places to recreate, and keeping family farms in the family, during the third annual Land Trust Advocacy Day sponsored by the Land Trust Alliance.

    Land trust leaders will attend issue briefings and networking events before conducting more than 100 individual meetings with staff and members of Congress in the Senate and House from key districts.
