The use of antimicrobial compounds in food animal production provides demonstrated benefits, including improved animal health, higher production and, in some cases, reduction in foodborne pathogens. However, use of antibiotics for agricultural purposes, particularly for growth enhancement, has come under much scrutiny, as it has been shown to contribute to the increased prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria of human significance. The transfer of antibiotic resistance genes and selection…

Antibiotics in Canadian poultry productions and anticipated alternatives
TLDR
The properties of some bioactive molecules, like those found in cranberry, which have shown interesting polyvalent antibacterial and immuno-stimulatory activities are described here.
Antimicrobial Resistance Arising from Food-Animal Productions and Its Mitigation
TLDR
This chapter discusses the development and occurrence of antimicrobial resistance arising from food animal production, as well as strategies and technologies to mitigate dissemination of AMR off farms to broad environment.
Impact of antibiotic use in adult dairy cows on antimicrobial resistance of veterinary and human pathogens: a comprehensive review.
TLDR
scientific evidence does not support widespread, emerging resistance among pathogens isolated from dairy cows to antibacterial drugs even though many of these antibiotics have been used in the dairy industry for treatment and prevention of disease for several decades, but it is clear that use of antibiotics in adult dairy cows and other food-producing animals does contribute to increased antimicrobial resistance.
Erratum to: Does the Recent Growth of Aquaculture Create Antibiotic Resistance Threats Different from those Associated with Land Animal Production in Agriculture?
TLDR
This review of 650+ papers from diverse sources examines parallels and differences between land-based agriculture of swine, beef, and poultry and aquaculture to show that resistant bacteria isolated from both Aquaculture and agriculture share the same resistance mechanisms, indicating thataquaculture is contributing to the same resistant issues established by terrestrial agriculture.
Antimicrobial resistance of mastitis pathogens.
[Sources of antibiotics in natural environments and their biological role].
TLDR
There is evidence that subinhibitory concentrations of antibiotics induce transfer of mobile genetic elements through horizontal gene transfer pathways, and therefore enhance antibiotic resistance, also among environmental strains.
Antibiotic Resistance Factors and Alternatives to Antimicrobial Growth Factors within Animal Husbandry
TLDR
This review looks at severalchanisms of such resistance transfer as well as alternatives to antibiotics to decrease the amount of antibiotic resistance in humans.
Antimicrobial resistance in beef and dairy cattle production
TLDR
A heuristic model is introduced that illustrates how repeated antimicrobial selection pressure can increase the probability of genetic linkage between AMR genes and niche- or growth-specific fitness traits and allows persistence of AMR bacteria at the herd level.
Probiotic Effects On Bacterial Community Structure And Antibiotic Resistance Of Gut Microbiota In Broiler Chickens Raised Under Three Different Dietary Conditions
TLDR
The effect of supplementing commercial broiler diet with probiotics, including conventionally-fed broiler chickens, is an important concept, as the resident microbiota may be significant for the prevention of such colonization.
Current Status of Antimicrobial Resistance and Prospect for New Vaccines against Major Bacterial Bovine Mastitis Pathogens
  • O. K. Dego
  • Biology
    Animal Reproduction in Veterinary Medicine
  • 2021
TLDR
Monitoring antimicrobial resistance patterns of bacterial isolates from cases of mastitis and dairy farm environments helps to determine emergence, persistence, and potential risk of the spread of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria and resistome from these reservoirs in dairy farms to humans, animals, and farm environments.

TLDR
Alternatives to growth-promoting and prophylactic uses of antimicrobials in agriculture include improved management practices, wider use of vaccines, and introduction of probiotics to minimize the further development of antimicrobial resistance.
Monitoring and identifying antibiotic resistance mechanisms in bacteria.
TLDR
It is extremely important to clearly understand the molecular mechanisms that could potentially cause lateral or horizontal gene transfer of antibiotic resistance genes among bacteria so that strategies can be instituted to reduce the potential for dissemination of these genes.

TLDR
There is a need to ensure that antibiotics important in human medicine are not used therapeutically or prophylactically in animals and the continued use of antibiotic growth promoters has been questioned.

TLDR
Alternative measures for growth promotion, such as antimicrobials which are not used for human therapy and which do not select for multiple-resistances are available, their use, instead of antibiotics, would remove a major factor contributing to the environmental pool of transferable resistance genes.
Public health consequences of use of antimicrobial agents in food animals in the United States.
TLDR
Increasing resistance to antimicrobial agents that are important in the treatment of human diseases, such as fluoroquinolones and third-generation cephalosporins for the Treatment of Salmonella and Campylobacter infections, has significant public health implications.

Antimicrobial Resistance in Bacteria of Animal Origin
TLDR
This book is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive overview of resistance mechanism in bacteria of animal origin rather than concentrating solely on zoonotic or foodborne bacteria.
Public health consequences of macrolide use in food animals: a deterministic risk assessment.
TLDR
This unique farm-to-patient risk assessment demonstrated that use of tylosin and tilmicosin in food animals presents a very low risk of human treatment failure, with an approximate annual probability of less than 1 in 10 million Campylobacter-derived and approximately 1 in 3 billion E. faecium-derived risk.
Comparison of antibiotic resistance of udder pathogens in dairy cows kept on organic and on conventional farms.
TLDR
The frequency of antibiotic resistance in organic farms, in which the use of antibiotics must be very restricted, was not different from conventional farms, and was contrary to expectation.
