Responsible use of
Antimicrobials on Dairy Farms
Responsible use of Antimicrobials on Dairy 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 Dairy Farms’ have been organised by CAFRE in partnership with Animal Health & Welfare Northern Ireland (AHWNI) to be delivered throughout Northern Ireland over the coming months by qualified veterinary surgeons.
‘Responsible Use of Antimicrobials’ workshops recommenced in October. In addition to courses being held at local venues there are now a number of webinars available.
Dates of available courses are listed below. If none of the dates or venues are suitable, please note that further courses will be added to this list.
This course meets the requirements of various farm quality assurance schemes.
Who are the workshops for?
The workshops are free to farmers, members of the farm family and employees. Attendees must pre-register in order to attend a workshop.
Topics covered in the workshops include:
- What is antimicrobial resistance
