The regulation of antibiotics is not "group driven". It is not focused on 'hobby producers' versus 'professional producers'. The intent is to keep the meat food chain free of antibiotics and to reduce the risk of drug resistant microbes.
There is a misconception that beef, pork and poultry have high levels of antibiotics in the finished meat - studies do not support that. The vast majority of animal scientist and veterinarians are not pushing for additional regulations. It is coming from the consumer and health officials.
And being pushed along by the animal and plant loving liberals.
