ONE HEALTH- Awareness to Action
The forthcoming ONE HEALTH – Awareness to Action Antimicrobial and Anthelmintic Resistance Conference focusses on creating a greater awareness amongst farmers and professionals serving the agri-food industry. There will also be an emphasis on clear concise practical actions which can be taken on Irish farms to reduce their need to use antimicrobials and anthelmintics. The morning session sets the scene and the challenges facing farmers and professionals with the national lead for the HSE for antimicrobial resistance, Professor Martin Cormican, (NUIG) as a key note speaker. Martin Kavanagh, Veterinary consultant, will describe the Scandinavian experience of farming without antibiotics, while Dr Aine Regan (Teagasc) will describe consumer demands for antimicrobial free food. Dr Dearbhaile Morris (NUIG) will highlight the role of the environment in the development and spread of AMR. Four Irish dairy, beef, sheep and pig producers will describe their experience of farming with reduced dependence on antimicrobials.
