Practical Strategies to reduce antimicrobials
Driven by the risks of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), for humans and animals, almost all EU countries are making efforts to reduce, and to implement more prudent use of antimicrobials. The dairy sector is required, and has the opportunity, to contribute to achieving this objective.
Antibiotic use in livestock, as in the dairy sector, varies greatly between countries. Some have made substantial reductions, and initiatives are underway in others, which can help to inspire and direct the dairy industry towards further progress, by exchanging relevant knowledge and experience.
EuroDairy gathered intelligence through its partners and wider networks, organized a cross border workshop, farmer exchange visits, technical webinars, and linked to regional Operational Groups focussed on reducing antibiotics. More information is available in the report.
