Code of practice for responsible use of antimicrobials in sheep
Minister of State in the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Senator Pippa Hackett, has launched the Code of Good Practice regarding the responsible use of antimicrobials in sheep.
Launching it, the minister said: ‘‘This Code of Good Practice will serve as a useful tool for sheep farmers as they work to address the ‘One Health’ challenge of Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR).”
AMR is resistance of a microorganism to a drug that was originally effective for treatment of infections caused by that microorganism.
