AMR roadshows taking place next week
20th Jan 2017 / By Alistair Driver
A roadshow bringing together pig producers from across the country to discuss how the industry is responding to the challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) will take place next week.
The ForFarmers and AHDB Pork AMR Roadshow will start near York on Monday, before moving onto Diss and Exeter over the next two days.
The meetings will hear first hand experience from the Netherlands about how the industry there has reducted its antibiotic usage and the lessons that have been learned.
Presentations will also cover nutritional solutions, the importance of water quality and other management techniques; as well providing as an opportunity to ask questions about the electronic Medicines Book (eMB).
