Q: Do you use any Antibiotics in your diets?
A: Antibiotics are very strictly controlled and monitored by Veterinarians, Government organisations and site FoodSafety programs. Antibiotic’s or traces off are not allowed to go into a diet that may be used at multiple sites e.g. bagged stockfeed. We have a very strict protocol that in the event a customer needs an Antibiotic to improve their livestock’s health, the Vet must give authorisation and it is fully documented and a full system flush and cleanout is done to ensure no cross-contamination with other diets. This system flush is a large cost to the customer and would only be done so as to ensure the livestock’s wellbeing.
