Reducing antimicrobial use in layers

Reducing reliance on antimicrobial agents is essential to successfully tackle the challenge of antimicrobial resistance. Limiting the use of antibiotics allows them to remain effective when needed to support both layer and human health. Rising demand worldwide for antibiotic-free produced eggs is a result of increased awareness of the associated risks.

Antimicrobial reduction

Increasingly, layers are being produced worldwide with fewer or no antibiotics, in response to the rising incidence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in both animals and humans. Rates of reduction vary by market, influenced by the preferences of government, the retail segment and some customers. Minimal use of antibiotics to protect their efficacy can help prevent damaged eggs, production losses and the potential for untreatable disease. Therefor, making investments in feed, farm and health management can help drive consistent, sustainable performance improvement.
