Food Armor® is the only program of its kind to layout the “how” veterinarians and producers can work together to obtain the goal of antimicrobial stewardship and stands to redefine drug use in animal agriculture. 

The process of developing an on-farm HACCP plan for proper drug use helps producers and veterinarians address animal welfare by identifying and stopping treatment of the incurable, which essentially reduces pain and suffering of the animal, while increasing food safety. Participating in Food Armor® moves you closer to ensuring food safety, responsible drug use and antimicrobial stewardship on our nation's farms.
