Pig farms’ own practices affect the resistance to antibiotics in the pork production chain

Pig farms’ own treatment practices and protective measures against pathogens play a key role in combating antimicrobial resistance in the pork production chain. This is shown by the joint study by the Finnish Food Authority and the University of Helsinki, which monitored the antibiotic resistance of the E. coli bacteria that are a part of the normal intestinal bacterial flora of animals during the different stages of the pig production chain. The results of the study can be used in instructions targeted at the producers and in the planning of antibiotic resistance risk management measures.
