On November 2 the Danish Parliament ratified an agreement on new strict rules for the use of antimicrobials in production animals and on animal welfare – both in the barn and during transport. The new rules are supplemented by the allocation of more resources for inspections

“The new rules provide an incentive to make sure that medicine is given only to individual animals in need of treatment, and not to the entire herd as a matter of course. This is a significant step in the further reduction of the use of antimicrobials in farming. This is a very important part of the fight against antimicrobial resistance which is a serious threat to human health,” says Danish Minister for Food, Agriculture and Fisheries Mette Gjerskov.

The agreement also includes remarkable improvements in the field of animal welfare.

Stricter rules for the use of antimicrobials are part of strengthening the One-Health-perspective where animal health and human health are closely connected.
