Antimicrobial resistance is a major problem in healthcare. Researchers warn that it will be the leading cause of death worldwide by 2050. To prevent this, the use of antibiotics must be substantially reduced, also in the livestock sector.
The measures taken in many countries seemed to be effective. However, after the initial declines, we now see that the reduction in antibiotics is stagnating. The objectives are not achieved. To achieve the required antibiotic reduction, far-reaching measures are needed.
The health pyramid shows that good hygiene (Hy) and animal care (Care) ensure that the use of vaccinations and antibiotics can be greatly reduced. By preventing infections from entering the farm and spreading, you help the animals stay strong and healthy.
The solutions for the most common problems in the field of hygiene and care in livestock farming have been brought together within HyCare. By keeping the environment clean and thus keeping the livestock healthy, HyCare helps to reduce the use of antibiotics.
Just like with the dairy industry, meat processing, butchery and food preparation, good hygiene of the animals is necessary for food safety. Contamination of animals with zoonoses often starts in the stable. Healthy animals therefore cause fewer "product recalls" due to, for example, salmonella or other infections.
With good hygiene, the farmer can also ensure that animals feel better, live better and bring more returns. This creates a unique win-win situation for all stakeholders. By applying HyCare you not only reduce the use of antibiotics, but you also improve general health, animal welfare and returns.
