This week on What Doesn’t Kill You, Katy Keiffer focuses on two separate reports, one by the Pew Commission and the other by the Animal Agriculture Alliance, regarding the state of animal agriculture. Katy talks with Emily Metz Meredith of the Animal Agriculture Alliance. Emily serves as the Communications Director for the Alliance and manages all aspects of the communications strategy. She is responsible for the Issues Management Committee and coordinating effective responses to the issues of the industry. Meredith also works closely with the media and develops the Alliance’s online outreach efforts. Using both traditional and social media, she educates urban consumers about the importance of animal agriculture. Tune in to hear how Emily views groups like the Pew Commission regarding the hot button topic of antibiotic resistance. How have resistant pathogens grown since the spread of antibiotics? Hear why veterinarians are getting involved with antibiotic administration in animal agriculture. This program has been brought to you by Route 11 Potato Chips.
“It’s easy for us who don’t raise animals for food production to make suggestions, but we are not the ones on the ground doing the work. We don’t see the forest for the trees.” [13:40]
