AHDB Pork offer support with eMB-Pigs entries

19th Nov 2016 / By Alistair Driver

AHDB Pork is offering to help farmers enter antibiotic usage data into the industry electronic database for a limited period.

embFor a limited time, farmers can send their 2015 on-farm antibiotic usage data, in any format, to AHDB Pork who will input it onto eMB-Pigs.

Data should be sent to your KE Manager or emailed to the pig hub email address 

The levy board said the offer of help would be available 'only for a limited period'.

If you have yet to upload your 2016 data to the eMB, AHDB Pork is urging farmers to take a look give these videos a watch.

AHDB Pork ad NPA are keen to reach a target of 70 per cent industry coverage of eMB-Pigs by the end of the year in order to present reliable data on antibiotic usage as 10-year usage targets are agreed in the early part of next year. Currently the figure is below 20 per cent.
