Consumers should have the confidence that drugs are being used properly.

The Food Armor Foundation’s Antimicrobial Stewardship plan is designed to:

Help you advocate for animal health and the industry

Empower you to take a leadership role in antimicrobial stewardship

Satisfy the needs for transparency among the supply chain

Ensure consumer confidence in food animal products

A stewardship plan that advocates for the food animal industry

“Compliance was a big issue and old habits are difficult to break. Having  protocols to follow, written jointly with the producer, made compliance much less of a concern.  Many drugs were actually eliminated from our producer’s pharmacies.”


“Teachable moments were critical when discussing protocols and economics of drug usage always played a role in our discussions. We now have well thought out processes founded on a team mentality.  No shooting from the hip!”


“Since implementing Food Armor drug costs are down and we are using less antibiotics, and only under approved veterinarian prescribed protocols.”
