Downloadable tools have been developed to support producers engaging around antibiotic use. A powerful guide covering 4 tips for advocating around antibiotics is available for individual or organizational/association use, and a library of antibiotic-focused social media images are also available. These images can be easily integrated into social platforms of all kinds to amplify one of the most important health issues of our time, using #antibioticresistance and #onehealth as key hashtags. These tools were funded in part by the beef checkoff.
