The Responsible use of Medicines

“As little as possible, as much as necessary” is one phrase been used to describe the approach to responsible use of medicines on farm. Antimicrobial drugs are just one of the available tools for managing disease in livestock and it is essential they are used alongside good husbandry, biosecurity and preventative medicines such as vaccination. In the face of a disease outbreak there may well be a place for antimicrobial drugs for immediate management, but it is important to identify the cause of the disease and formulate a management plan which will help reduce the risk of recurrence. This course will assist you in assessing your approach to Responsible Use of Medicines on Your Farm.
