Video Details

The goal of this FAAST Review is to:

  1. Educate food animal producers on the safe and responsible use of livestock medicines to safeguard public health, animal health, and food safety; and
  2. Ensure that the antimicrobials we use in agriculture remain effective for years to come

To do this, the original “Livestock Medicines” course, designed and conducted by animal health and food safety experts at the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food, and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA), has been digitized, re-designed, and updated to provide an accessible resource for all livestock producers in Ontario.

What you’ll learn/topics covered

  • Types of antimicrobials, how they work, and responsible use
  • Reading livestock medicines labels
  • Proper handling, storage, and administration of livestock medicines
