Antimicrobial resistance in high-risk beef cattle target of new grant
Reducing the amounts of antimicrobials used in food animals is of particular concern in order to produce the healthiest meats possible, and that effort will now have additional help from Texas Tech University.
Kristin Hales, a researcher in the Texas Tech College of Agricultural Sciences & Natural Resources, has been awarded a nearly $1 million grant as part of a larger initiative from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to mitigate antimicrobial resistance (AMR) across the food chain, Texas Tech said in an announcement.
Hales, the Thornton distinguished chair and associate professor in the college’s department of animal and food sciences, received an award for $999,998 from USDA’s National Institute of Food & Agriculture for her project, “Investigating the Emergence & Ecology of Antimicrobial Resistance in High-Risk Beef Cattle.
