Alternatives to Non-critical Antibiotics

While some antibiotics remain necessary for addressing critical health concerns, the reduction of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) is becoming a consumer expectation due to the health risks they may impose. Even before reducing the use of medication became a global trend, ADM has been investigating alternative solutions that will contribute to more resilient animal production and a sustainable future. 


We are recognized worldwide for our animal nutrition solutions sourced from natural and sustainable ingredients, including alternatives to antibiotics. These options still optimize animal care and comfort while enhancing resilience and robustness.​ Our priorities include enhancing animal durability and performance through nutrition solutions and delivering high-quality end products. 

Focus on Sustainability

Our solutions assist with animal production targets while improving animal welfare and reducing the environmental impact of animal production. We strive to help producers maximize animal performance and lower environmental impact.
