    My mother bought the book, and so did our vet. He has some interesting points he makes, such as "why treat a cow, if you have to ship it, might as well not treat it and take a chance". In other words, cow dies its gone, cow is shipped, it's gone. He isn't overly for antibiotics, but is not against the use to save it's life, but does say the animal should be allowed to say to feed calves or something.


    My mother likes the book, and the vet found it interesting.

    That seems a valid point Jeff, I feel that's one area that has a direct impact on residual antibiotics in meat.
