No Unnecessary Antibiotics
Our animals are not given unnecessary antibiotics. They do not receive "preventative" or subtherapeutic antibiotics in feed, a practice which leads to greater antibiotic resistance.
We treat our animals humanely in a low stress environment, which means our animals rarely get sick. For example, the cattle and hogs born and raised at Callicrate Cattle Co. are harvested on the farm. Rather than shipping a live animal, only the carcass is transported for further processing. Any antibiotic use is in accordance with federal laws ensuring no residual antibiotics at processing.
