Ireland: the responsible use of antimicrobials on poultry farms

27 August, 2021

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, and the Minister of State, have launched the Code of Good Practice regarding the responsible use of antimicrobials on poultry farms. This code has been developed collaboratively by farming and veterinary stakeholders of the iNAP animal health committee under the chairmanship of the Animal and Plant Health Association.  This collective stakeholder action supports the 2021 action plan of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine (DAFM), specifically in relation to the goal of promoting and safeguarding animal health and welfare for the benefit of consumers, producers, the economy and wider society. Actions taken by the poultry sector to improve animal health, and prevent disease, are key to reducing the use of antibiotics, and effectively tackling antimicrobial resistance.
