Actively avoiding antibiotics resistance
A comprehensive data basis on antibiotics resistance in agricultural businesses is one of the prerequisites for ensuring the optimisation of the use of antibiotics in livestock farming, thereby reducing the danger posed by resistant bacteria.
In the QS antibiotics monitoring programme, veterinarians provide a reliable data basis by entering antibiotics prescriptions for pigs and poultry into the QS antibiotics database.
You can find the documents for your participation in the QS antibiotics monitoring programme and the link to the antibiotics database here:
Making the use of antibiotics transparent
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.
