Good news for chickens and meat eaters alike. Perdue Farms, one of the nation’s foremost poultry-producers, is drastically reducing the amount of antibiotics it uses to raise the chickens that wind up on your dinner plate.

That may not seem like a big deal, but it is. Unfortunately, antibiotics have become a normal part of raising livestock in America. As Care2 has previously reported, 80% of our antibiotics get used on the animals we eat. Antibiotics are used for a variety of purposes like preventing animals from developing diseases while living in substandard conditions and helping the animals to put on additional weight.
