AMR Courses – Responsible use of Antimicrobials on Beef and Sheep Farms

Date Posted: 7th January 2021

Updated information January 2021

Anti-microbial resistance is an increasingly serious threat worldwide where disease causing organisms can develop resistance to antimicrobial drugs, for example, antibiotics. Over time this can lead to the drugs becoming ineffective in treating infections and diseases. A number of workshops focusing on 'Responsible Use of Antimicrobials on Beef and Sheep Farms’ have been organised by CAFRE in partnership with AI Services to be delivered throughout Northern Ireland over the coming months by qualified veterinary surgeons. 

The workshops are free to farmers, members of the farm family and employees. Attendees must pre-register in order to attend a workshop.

Responsible Use of Antimicrobials courses are available as face-to-face workshops and online webinars.

You can register for face-to-face workshops and webinars from the CAFRE website.
