|Title:||Current antimicrobial use in farm animals in the Republic of Ireland||Authors:||Martin, Hannah; Manzanilla, Edgar Garcia; More, Simon John; O’Neill, Lorcan; Bradford, Lisa; Carty, Catherine I.; Collins, Áine B.; McAloon, Conor G.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12288||Date:||26-Jun-2020||Online since:||2021-06-23T11:15:04Z||Abstract:||Antimicrobial resistance has been recognised as one of the most difficult challenges facing human and animal health in recent decades. The surveillance of antimicrobial use in animal health plays a major role in dealing with the growing issue of resistance. This paper reviews current data available on antimicrobial use in farmed animals in the Republic of Ireland, including each of the major livestock production sectors; pigs, poultry, dairy, beef and sheep. A systematic literature search was conducted to identify relevant published literature, and ongoing research was identified through the network of authors and searches of each of the research databases of the main agriculture funding bodies in Ireland. The varying quantities and quality of data available across each livestock sector underlines the need for harmonisation of data collection methods. This review highlights the progress that has been made regarding data collection in the intensive production sectors such as pigs and poultry, however, it is clear there are significant knowledge gaps in less intensive industries such as dairy, beef and sheep. To comply with European regulations an antimicrobial data collection system is due to be developed for all food-producing animals in the future, however in the short-term surveillance studies have allowed us to build a picture of current use within the Republic of Ireland. Further studies will allow us to fill current knowledge gaps and build a more comprehensive overview of antimicrobial use in farm animals in Ireland.||Funding Details:||Food Safety Promotion Board||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Springer Nature||Journal:||Irish Veterinary Journal||Volume:||73||Copyright (published version):||2020 the Authors||Keywords:||Antimicrobials; Usage; Food animals; Ireland||DOI:||10.1186/s13620-020-00165-z||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ie/|
