AMR is a growing priority for livestock farmers in NI

  01 June 2021

There is now strong evidence, confirming that Northern Ireland leads the way, in many aspects, where antimicrobial resistance (AMR) measures introduced within the UK are concerned.

Livestock and Meat Commission (LMC) industry development manager, Colin Smith, sits on the Responsible Use of Medicines in Agriculture Alliance (RUMA) Cattle Antibiotic Guardian Group. The organisation plays an important role in encouraging the responsible use of veterinary medicines in agriculture.  

RUMA is a unique, independent non-profit alliance of farming, animal health industry, food retailing and associated groups, with the aim of promoting a coordinated and integrated approach to best practice in the use of medicines on farm.
