Effective Livestock Production with Low Use of Antibiotics

Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences via FutureLearn


Understand disease prevention and antibiotic use in livestock production

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is an increasing problem worldwide and is a threat to the health of animals and humans. However, there is still a need for an efficient livestock production, which requires healthy animals. In many countries, this has led to an extensive and often inappropriate use of antibiotics, which may contribute to increasing antibiotic resistance.

On this course, you will learn how basic disease preventive measures in combination with sensible use of antibiotics can sustain or even increase the livestock production and limit the emergence of antibiotic resistance.

This course is for livestock keepers and professionals working in the livestock production sector (such as veterinarians and advisors) in low-income countries and emerging economies worldwide. The course might also be of interest for agricultural authorities in those countries.
