Selective Antibiotic Use

There is increasing pressure on producers to use veterinary medicines more sparingly, in particular, antibiotics. Many assurance schemes are striving to prove agriculture is doing its bit to prevent antimicrobial resistance. This Farming Note covers measures that can be taken to use antibiotics more selectively.

This Farming Note covers:

  • How antibiotic resistance can develop on farm
  • Selective Dry Cow Therapy
  • On-farm bacterial culture
  • Laboratory bacterial testing
  • Reducing antibiotic use in calves
  • Promoting immunity

Issued November 2015.
