The use of antibiotics in Danish farming has fallen by 11 percent since 2009. This is shown by data from October 2013. In this way, Danish farmers have reached the policy objective to reduce the use of antibiotics by 10 percent compared to the level in 2009.

Success of yellow-card scheme

Reduced use of antibiotics has been registered since the introduction of the so-called yellow card scheme. The scheme is combined with surveillance of the use of antibiotics. When a farmer exceeds a certain limit, he or she will get an injunction to lower the use of antibiotics. If the farmer does not succeed, he or she gets extraordinary veterinarian assistance and inspection. Ultimately, the number of animals that the farmer may hold legally will be reduced.
