‘We’ve reached the end of antibiotics’ CDC offical

‘We’ve reached the end of antibiotics’: Top CDC expert declares that ‘miracle drugs’ that have saved millions are no match against ‘superbugs’ because people have overmedicated themselves

This is a quote from a top CDC official… and it got me to thinking… what if this is not just hype but that maybe, just maybe humanity has overmedicated ourselves, our farm animals and over genetically modified all of our foods. perhaps we ourselves have allowed this to happen.

This and other stories like it are published all over. Moreover, there are strains of flue that are killing people in Texas and Missouri.

Thankfully, there is a product tested in Europe and used in Hospitals in 30 countries. Chrisal Probiotics that can be purchased now in the USA.

I, being an poultry farmer in agriculture understand the uses and lately the limitations of antibiotics. Further the “antibiotics” that I used to purchase at the feed stores no longer work for chickens. What will people do when antibiotics stop working in hospitals for humans. Something to think about.

Don’t BLAME yourself for mistakes- Enjoy your chickens heres why…

Over the years as I have raised chickens I’ve decided to stop beating myself up for the mistakes that I have made along the way. My small farm (medium? large? depending on who’s looking at Blue Star Ranch) has raised in the many thousands, maybe more of young chickens to adult laying age and supplied pet owners, farmers and businesses throughout Texas and other states.

When I was real new at raising chickens I went to forums and websites hoping to find the “magic answer” to all of my coop or chickens daily questions that ran though my mind. Is this answer right? could this just be an old wives tale? maybe this person has the answer.. I tried everything to make my small (and growing farm) “perfect” Well, I found that forums of thousands of “chicken club” friends weren’t really my friends. They mostly repeated stories, folklore and tidbits of handy information now and then. There was NO ONE person or place that really had what I was looking for.

There was no magic answer to all of the plagues of poultry and occasional losses of stock due to accidents or weather related catastrophes.

I came to know that in raising livestock sometimes things are just out of your control. The best thing you can do is be prepared for weather related issues, keep your coop as clean and balanced with bacteria (the right kind) and have supplies on hand BEFORE you need them. Then just do your best and sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Once I started doing all of these things and complete my “checklist” of chores, I sleep better at night knowing that my chickens are cared for in the best way possible. They have a happy secure farm life, and that’s the best anyone can do.
