Press release 15 November 2016

Further reduction in antimicrobial use in Danish animals

Antimicrobial consumption in Danish animals has continued to decrease in 2015, mainly due to a reduction in pigs. By contrast, serious outbreaks of disease among broilers and mink have resulted in an increased use of antimicrobials in these animals.

This year’s report is the 20th anniversary edition of DANMAP.
