E-M:/ pharmaceuticals in the environment-- Ag antibiotics calculator

Another concern with pharmaceuticals in the environment...agricultural use.  Environmental Defense has posted an Agricultural Antibiotics calculator.   (I've had trouble getting the data to download fully. Maybe somebody with a high-speed connection can post the usage of Michigan counties.) -Janet Kauffman

"The Agricultural Antibiotics Calculator is comprised of two web-accessible MS Excel spreadsheets that allow you to view national, state and county-level state estimates of the amount of antibiotics used as feed additives for nontherapeutic purposes in raising hogs, broiler chickens and beef cattle (note that therapeutic use, i.e., for treatment of sick animals, is not included)."
