NIAMRRE Member: Farm Foundation

About the Webinar

In this member spotlight, learn more about the Farm Foundation, an accelerator of practical solutions for agriculture whose mission is to build trust and understanding at the intersections of agriculture and society. The legacy of Farm Foundation is rooted in more than eight decades of leaders who believe that objective and multi-stakeholder efforts can play a critical role in addressing the evolving issues shaping the future of agriculture, the food system, and rural communities. Of interest to the NIAMRRE community specifically, in recent years, Farm Foundation has done extensive work on the stewardship of antibiotics in the production of food animals, including spearheading a two-year dialogue among stakeholders to ensure that antibiotics are used judiciously throughout production to protect animal and public health.
