QS Antibiotics monitoring: Actively avoiding antibiotics resistance

A comprehensive data basis on the use of antibiotics in agricultural businesses is an important prerequisite for making the use of antibiotics in livestock farming transparent, optimizing it and thus reducing the risks posed by resistant bacteria.

In QS Antibiotics Monitoring, veterinarians ensure a reliable data basis by recording antibiotic prescriptions for pigs, poultry and cattle in the QS Antibiotics Database.

The evaluation of the data by QS allows veterinarians and livestock farmers to compare the use of antibiotics in one business with the average of all businesses in the QS scheme. On this basis, specific actions can be introduced to reduce the use of antibiotics in the business.
