The Schippers Group and Healthy Livestock hosted an online conference about antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The conference featured leading scientists and practitioners in the field of antimicrobial use in farm animals.

The conference was held in cooperation between The Schippers Group and the Healthy Livestock project. With more than 300 attendees from 60 countries, the conference brought together voices from veterinarians, scientists, practitioners and policy makers to discuss strategies for reducing AMR. In this half-day conference, experts discussed prevention, early detection and precision medication of diseases in pigs, poultry and cattle. Prevention of diseases can be achieved by improving biosecurity, hence reducing infections, and by enhancing resilience. These improvements in farm management are
instrumental to reduce antimicrobial use and therefore AMR. Although scientific leads are very strong, practical implementation appears challenging and effective but feasible concepts are required. Several promising solutions and their efficacy have been discussed.
This conference was a precursor to a larger conference that will be held in Bologna, Italy, in June of this year. With these conferences, This Schippers Group aims to raise awareness of AMR as a threat to animal, human and environmental health, and to contribute to developing robust and sustainable livestock production systems.
