What We’re Watching | Raised With Care: Stewards of the Land

This spring, the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association (ABVMA), in association with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry announced the release of a new documentary.

Raised With Care: Stewards of the Land looks at the issue of antimicrobial resistance, and the importance of stewardship from producers, farmers, government, and veterinarians.

“Antimicrobial resistance can or will impact all of us. We’re moving towards the post-antibiotic era, where we can’t necessarily treat these bacterial infections that we take for granted…”

Dr. Simon Otto – DVM and researcher at University of Alberta, School of Public Health, in raised with care: stewards of the land

The video features a number of faces that will be familiar to those in Alberta’s beef and livestock sectors, including:

  • Daryl McIntyre – host and former Senior CTV News Anchor
  • Devin Dreeshen – Minister of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry
  • Pat Burrage – DVM and President of the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association
  • Duane Landals – DVM and President of the Alberta SPCA
  • Tom Inglis – DVM, Poultry Health Services

  • Simon Otto – DVM and researcher at University of Alberta, School of Public Health
  • Becky Taylor – RVT, Mosaic Veterinary Group
  • Kym & Buster Andrew – Ranchers, Rafter 17 Ranching

Co-written and produced by ev+ AGENCY and Urban Video, the film focuses on collaborations that occur across all sectors of the supply chain.
