Ingham’s does not permit the use of antibiotics for growth promotion purposes nor any antibiotics currently used in human health for prophylactic purposes. Ingham’s also restricts the use of antibiotics deemed by the Australian Strategic and Technical Advisory Group on antimicrobial resistance (ASTAG) rated to be highly important, or those deemed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to be critically important for human medicine.
Antibiotics will only be used as a treatment where no other viable treatment is available and to not do so would compromise the welfare of the birds. In the event antibiotics are prescribed, their use is directed by one of our company veterinarians.
