EPRUMA brochure explaining the role and benefits of antibiotics in animal health and describing best-practice for their use in food-producing animals at the farm.
The brochure outlines a 'next level' approach following on from the 2008 'EPRUMA best-practice framework for the use of antibiotics in food-producing animals'.
It presents both a more holistic and more specific approach to implementing responsible use of antibiotics for further optimisation of animal health. It also gives guidance on indoor and free-range production, housing, biosecurity, nutrition, etc. and it includes a decision tree on the use of veterinary antibiotics in food-producing animals.
