Antimicrobial Stewardship in the UK Pig Industry

A Changing Landscape
Lucy Coyne, MRCVS, AHDB Pork Veterinary Manager,
submits a paper about the UK pig industry, which is acting
to put itself in a more informed position on its antimicrobial
use in light of global concern over antimicrobial usage
and resistance. The recently published O’Neill report
highlighted the issues around antimicrobial resistance
in both humans and livestock, and the UK pig industry
recognises its responsibility to measure and control its use
of antimicrobials.
