Antibiotic briefings updated

8th Dec 2016 / By

We have updated our antibiotic briefings in light of recent developments.  

Our briefing on antibiotic use in pigs has been updated to take into account the 2015 figures from the VARSS report, which confirmed that encouraging progress is being made towards reducing usage in the pig sector.

We have also updated our colistin briefing, in light of recent developments.

It is well worth taking the time to browse through our comprehensive Briefings section, which also includes full details of NPA's industry Antibiotic Stewardship Programme, as well as briefings on a range of subjects from Brexit to swill feeding and slatted floors.
