Antimicrobials Guidelines

A unique initiative involving organisations representing every stage of the "farm to fork" process, RUMA aims to promote a co-ordinated and integrated approach to best practice in the use of medicines

As part of this process, RUMA has formulated comprehensive guidelines for the responsible use of antimicrobials in livestock production. These give advice on all aspects from application and responsibilities of the farmer and veterinary surgeon, to strategies for reduced usage.

The following summaries of the Farmer Responsibilities sections are available here.

Copies of the full guidelines are also available online to download:
