Antibiotics are vitally important when required on farms, but we must all play a part in ensuring they are available and can be used effectively for many years to come. Antibiotics are primarily only effective against bacterial infections and have no action against viruses.
Vets at SRUC, have designed a tool, to input your annual antibiotic usage for rumen livestock. This will give you and your vet the knowledge of your use for sheep, beef and dairy and allow a baseline to be set for future targets.
