Poultry World will host a brand new free webinar on “Antibiotic Reduction” on December 15, 15.00 CET


About the webinar:

The reduction of antibiotic usage, first with the ban of in feed antibiotics in Europe and in the US, and the following reduction of prescribed antibiotic usage, is first and foremost a human health issue. Preventing bacteria from becoming resistant is key. However, societal demand for a more sustainable way of production has a share in the trend for using less antibiotics too, as has the success of marketing meat produced without the administration of antimicrobials. Within these trends it is essential to keep the birds healthy using fewer or even no antibiotics. It is a quest for many poultry professionals all around the globe. This webinar aims to give practical insight in how to reduce antibiotics with the help of knowledge, management and additives, as well as reflect upon the effect of results already achieved on the resistance front.

Effects of reduction of antibiotic use on antimicrobial resistance in Dutch broilers

The reduction of antibiotic usage (AMU) in animals is intended to reduce the risk for spreading antimicrobial resistance (AMR) from livestock to the human population through the food chain. After a brief introduction of the Dutch success story on reducing antibiotic use in livestock (including broilers), the AMR monitoring system is explained, followed by examples showing the effect on resistance in bacteria from broilers and chicken meat.
