Summary: Some EU forerunners in pig husbandry have been successful at reducing antimicrobials without sacrificing productivity or performance. Three antimicrobial reduction take-home messages, inspired by forerunners’ success are discussed in this article. In field studies it is shown how multi-stakeholder approach can help achieve goals while reducing their reliance on antimicrobials.
Take home message 1: benchmarking optimises success
Take home message 2: it is all about prevention
Take home message 3: an integrated approach is key
Concluding: Plan, do, check and act:
Scientific insights applied to practical approaches on customer farms show that a multi-stakeholder approach, integrating feed, farm and health management can help swine farmers achieve production goals while reducing or eliminating their reliance on antimicrobials.
