How We're Doing

Saving Antibiotics

Every day, industrial farms use antibiotics for disease prevention. Applegate protects human health by prohibiting them.

  • Industrial farms use 35,000,000 pounds of antibiotics yearly
  • Applegate mandates zero* antibiotics yearly

*Applegate does not allow antibiotics for disease prevention. Sick animals are treated and sold to a conventional system.
