Comprehensive information on the use of antibiotics in livestock farming is needed to optimize the use of antibiotics and reduce the emergence of resistant pathogens in the long run. The antibiotics monitoring programme creates a reliable data basis to achieve this goal.
The centrepiece of the monitoring system is a central database (http://www.vetproof.de/). Every use of antiobiotics in poultry and fattening pigs is registered in this database.
