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)

Responsible Use of Antimicrobials courses are now available as face-to-face workshops and online webinars.

You register for face-to-face workshops and webinars in the same way.

Before you register for a webinar, it is recommended that you carry out a speed test on your broadband. You will need download and upload speeds of at least 2mb/second to ensure that you can participate fully and be able to view the video in the presentation.

Attendance certificates to meet FQAS requirements will be issued on successful completion of both the face-to-face workshops and webinars.

To successfully complete a webinar you will need to:

  • Pre-register. Log in details are only provided if you are pre-registered.
  • Be logged in to the webinar for at least 90% of the presentation.

*Please note that if a number of people are using one device (e.g. computer, tablet, smartphone) to sit in on a webinar, only the person registered will receive an attendance certificate.

If you have already pre-registered for a face-to-face course and are now registering for a webinar, can you please cancel your original booking. This will help free up a space for someone else.
