The widespread use of antibiotics in animal production causes two important problems. Firstly, there is the risk that antibiotic residues may be found in human food and secondly, is the development of antibiotic resistance in pathogenic micro-organisms.
There is pressure from both Governments and consumers on the animal production industry to reduce antibiotic use.
This 50 page report specifies ways in which growth promoters and therapeutic antibiotics are being reduced across the industry.
