“UK pig farms: 50% less antibiotic usage in 2 years”

As the biannual Pig & Poultry Fair has kicked off in the United Kingdom, the news broke that the British pig industry has reduced antibiotic usage by 28% in 2017, bringing the total reduction in 2 years to more than 50%.

The 2017 reduction means the pig industry has more than halved its antibiotic usage within the last 2 years – with the latest figure building on a 34% cut in usage between 2015 and 2016.
