Businesses like Westfield Farms have role to play in fighting antimicrobial resistance
The threat of antimicrobial resistance [AMR] is a well-documented challenge of these times, and swift reduction in antibiotic usage is one of many efforts to tackle the issue, in order to render it less likely that harmful bacteria is exposed to antibiotics and can, therefore, develop resistance to them.
The decline in antibiotic usage is largely down to a commitment from the UK’s food, farming and veterinary sectors to focus on disease control and prevention, and the extent of the falling numbers was confirmed in the annual Veterinary Antibiotic Resistance Sales and Surveillance [VARSS] report published at the time.
