Responsible use of Antimicrobials on Beef and Sheep Farms

Anti-microbial resistance is an increasingly serious threat worldwide where disease causing organisms can develop resistance to antimicrobial drugs, for example, antibiotics. Over time this can lead to the drugs becoming ineffective in treating infections and diseases. A number of workshops focusing on ‘’Responsible Use of Antimicrobials on Beef and Sheep Farms’ have been organised by CAFRE in partnership with AI Services to be delivered throughout Northern Ireland over the coming months by qualified veterinary surgeons.

FFKS and Covid-19 (Coronavirus)
