In the context of reasonable use of antibiotics, monitoring consumption is an indispensable step to have a better knowledge of practices, consumption levels in order to implement improvement actions and evaluate them. In this perspective, software for consumptions monitoring has been developed by the company DBM. It is an innovative follow-up tool that helps the breeder in an animal health sustainable management approach. This software can be used by the breeder and the veterinarian: it measures and assesses joint actions set up to reduce the use of antibiotics, compares the evolutions by production, sectors or breeders in relation to the results of all livestock monitored and also to reference indicators. For the breeder and his veterinarian, the software is a tool that enables a reactive “diagnosis” and that helps to make a decision. The software shows the efforts carried out by the breeders and veterinarians to their partners and networks.
