Use of antibiotics in livestock production has received increased scrutiny due to public health concerns over the development and dissemination antimicrobial resistance. As a result, there are efforts to replace the use of medically important antimicrobial drugs in food producing animals with novel non-antimicrobial alternatives to treat disease.
