Tackling antimicrobial use and resistance in pig production

Lessons learned in Denmark

This publication describes an arduous campaign to tackle the use of antimicrobials – specifically antibiotics – in the Danish swine-producing sector thanks to the collaboration between the regulatory sector within the Ministry of Environment and Food, private veterinary practitioners and swine producers.

The document is a retrospective tribute to all those who had the foresight to make significant changes to ensure consumer protection – improving hygiene at primary sites, developing options for intervention, identifying sites for intervention, setting targets, restructuring the relationship between the veterinary services and farmers, and implementing changes in behaviour for greatest impact.
