UK - A step-by-step video guide to adding antibiotic usage into the electronic medicine booklet (eMB) has been produced by AHDB Pork for the UK pig industry.

On top of this, there is a webinar explaining how to use eMB taking place on Tuesday 18 October at 6:00pm and next month a printed guide will be posted out to producers, as well as being available online.

AHDB Pork vet team manager Martin Smith said: “The interest from producers has been good but we need to get the whole industry on board.

“It is vital we get the whole industry on board and provide a benchmark for the amount of antibiotics actually being used by the end of the year. Next year targets for antibiotic reduction will be introduced and we need to know how much is being used or those targets could be hard to meet.

“Using eMB is very straightforward and can, if producers wish, replace their existing medicines book.”
