News from Jun 05, 2019
The institute carries out a project on antibiotics use in calves on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture. In Germany, there are several types of calves husbandry that differ significantly in their risk that calves become infected. Objective of the study is to classify the types of calves husbandry according to this in order to identify farms with a high antibiotics use within their farm type. Further, the situation of resistance patterns in calves husbandries is investigated and to link antibiotics use with antibiotics resistance.
