Netherlands - Antibiotics in livestock farming: turning the corner?

FIDIN, the association for the suppliers of animal drugs, recently announced that antibiotics use fell by 12 percent in 2010, following a fall of two percent in the previous year. That is good news. The government wants use of antibiotics this year to be 20 percent less than in 2009, and to have halved in 2013.

FIDIN, the association for the suppliers of animal drugs, recently announced that antibiotics use fell by 12 percent in 2010, following a fall of two percent in the previous year. That is good news. The government wants use of antibiotics this year to be 20 percent less than in 2009, and to have halved in 2013.

While it is true that the use of antibiotics among dairy cows and pigs bred for meat fell by more than 10 percent in 2009 and among calves bred for meat by four percent, use among broiler chickens remained constant while use rose by more than 10 percent among sows.
