Measuring antibiotic use on-farm: follow-up advice on metrics to use for pigs (eMB)

17 Feb 2020

The method of measuring and recording antibiotic use in pigs is explained as part of the protocols for uploading data to the sector’s e-Medicine Book (eMB). Uploading usage data to this portal is a requirement of Red Tractor assurance and therefore antibiotic use data for over 90% of animals in the sector is captured in this way. The User Guide published in 2017 explains the metrics on p29, and follow-up advice added in 2018 adjusted the category names.
