Pork Quality Initiative - Understanding Color, Ph, and Marbling - PORK AcademyPork Quality Initiative - Understanding Color, Ph, and Marbling - PORK Academy Jim Compart, Compart Family Farms, and Dr. Steve Larsen, National Pork Board, highlight the focus on pork quality for the consumer and what it means. Mr. Compart shares the background of how pork has been viewed in the past and the impacts of the early views that pork needed to be cooked to 160° F. Even though the temperature to cook pork is lower (145° F), families continue to follow the old approach. The National Pork Board aims to increase awareness about the lower temperature and resting time with focused consumer marketing [video].

Can We Define A Model Of Metrics For Antibiotics and Resistance?

The NIAA Effort: Learning from the June RoundtableLearning From The NIAA Antibiotic June Roundtable Dr. Christopher Braden, Deputy Director, National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, CDC, presents a model of metrics to understand the judicious use of antibiotics experience in human health. Dr. Braden outlines several metrics categories: antibiotic Use with prescription data, antibiotic stewardship with facility data, and antibiotic-resiatance trends and spread with microbiologic data. Dr. Braden highlights several example metric and reporting projects, like the community antibiotic prescribing rates per 1000 population in the United States [video].

Is There An Antibiotic-Resistance Connection From Farm To Fork?

Drug-Resistant Foodborne Campylobacteriosis in Humans: Is There a Link to Antibiotic Use in Agricultural Animals?Drug-Resistant Foodborne Campylobacteriosis in Humans: Is There a Link to Antibiotic Use in Agricultural Animals? Dr. M.A. McCrackin, Charleston VA Medical Center Research Service and Medical University of South Carolina, brings to light a real example of antibiotic-resistance research. Her project looked antibiotic resistance and connection from farm to fork. Specially, Dr. McCrackin's team wanted to address the literature evidence for a link between antibiotics used in agricultural animals intended for food and antibiotic-resistant infections in humans. One of the key conclusions: on farm antibiotic treatments will increase the colonization of animals with antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter, and antibiotic-resistant Campylobacter can be transmitted to humans in raw animal products. But current literature is inadequately detailed to establish a causal relationship between antibiotic use in agricultural animals & antibiotic-resistant campylobacteriosis in humans [video].
