Last week I attended a very well run national One Health event. It was a call to action on the challenge of antibiotic resistance. The Irish farmers Journal, Xlvets Ireland and Virtual Vet, are already taking action on this key issue through Project Engage.
It is great to see the early results from this project driven by the vets and farmers involved. All on-farm antibiotic usage has been measured for the last three years. We have targeted areas for reduction and, through regular vet visits, we are improving animal health.
