I think that's a great idea. Antibiotic resistance is a huge problem.

If they can't pump antibiotics into animals, my thinking is that they would no longer be able pack the live animals so tightly in a pen because surely they would get diseases. I'm thinking of feed lots for cattle where they are standing around on mounds of their own feces. Probably nearly the same for poultry.

Not sure what this would do to the mean/poultry industry economics.

Don't get me wrong - I'm all for putting a stop to the indiscriminate use of antibiotics and hormones (for that matter). Just think it's closing the barn door too late.*

*For those in other countries, the saying goes: "closing the barn door AFTER the cows got out" which is a stupid thing to do and doesn't really help.

VeeJay, In Australia: Closing the barn (or stable) door after the horse has bolted.

From what I've read, that's not what makes them sick although perhaps it could spread that way. What makes them sick is the unnatural food they make them eat: grains when they should be eating grass.

Factory animal farming is the main reason to use antibiotics -- to stop disease quickly spreading to everyone in the over stuffed pens...

Many years ago - I decided to get away from factory farmed animals and go with organic free range - no antibiotic / no hormone meats -- I little more money but has to be better for you

This kind of surprises me that it hasn't been done ,yet. Being an ex dairy worker its been that way with milk for a long time. Before you can pump a tanker you must take a sample and see whats in the cow's milk,if its not pure milk bye bye driver.
