Code of Good Practice Regarding the Responsible Prescribing and Use of Antibiotics in Farm Animals by Irish Farmers (IFA) and Veterinary Practitioners (Veterinary Ireland)
In Significant Impact Groups:
Species targeted: Pigs; Poultry; Dairy; Beef; Sheep;
Responsible use of antibiotics means aiming to use “as little as possible and as much as necessary”. A „Code of Good Practice Regarding the Responsible Prescribing and Use of Antibiotics in Farm Animals‟ was launched in November 2018. These Guidelines have been developed by Irish Farmers and Veterinary Practitioners to guide good practice in the responsible prescribing and use of antibiotics in farm animals, in response to the global societal challenge of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The development of and spread of AMR is a challenge for public and animal health into the future. Farmers have a key role to play by working to keep antibiotics effective for future generations through improving animal health and reducing levels of use on farms.
