In order to improve the characterization of the influence of the human factor on the variability of antimicrobial uses, a survey was conducted in 2016 with 68 broiler breeders in the Brittany and Pays de la Loire regions. The use of antimicrobials, or at least the perception of the level of use by farmers (up or down), is directly related to the perception of their profession (positive or negative). The perception of the poultry profession also seems to be linked to the observance of certain health prevention practices. Finally, a positive view of the profession seems to be associated with farmers who have an easier time taking a step back from the health events (animal mortality) and the use of antibiotic treatments. The sensitization of technical teams, from their initial training, to take these factors into account appears essential, to help them reflect on the practice of their future profession.
