A judge bans the use of antibiotics in feed and water for the purpose of growth enhancement in the livestock. This only took 35 years.Steps set for ban on widely used livestock antibiotics
"intended to prevent penicillin and tetracycline, widely used antibiotics, from losing their effectiveness in humans because of their bulk use in animal feed to promote growth in chickens, pigs and cattle."
"In a separate move, the FDA is expected to issue draft rules within days that ask drug makers to voluntarily end the use of antibiotics in animals without the oversight of a veterinarian.
But neither the judge’s order nor the FDA’s expected rule changes are likely to fundamentally alter the large-scale agricultural uses of antibiotics because farmers and ranchers now say the drugs are being used to prevent animal diseases, not to promote growth. The FDA has so far refused to propose restrictions on antibiotic uses to prevent disease even when the drugs are delivered in feed or water, and Katz’s order does not extend to disease prevention uses."
So there will probably be little to no change.
