The article discusses the highlights of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture symposium which reviewed two case studies that analyzed antibiotic use and resistance. F18 and K88 vaccines, and faster pig flow changes are presented to improve antibiotic use in the 4,000-head nursery in Indiana which addressed a resistant Escherichia coli problem over a three-year period. Water medicated with chlortetracycline have been used to address sudden death loss in pigs moving to finisher rooms.
