Abstract

The responsible use of farm animal medicines - specifically antimicrobials (AMs) - is a key concern for all food system stakeholders. Various AM use (AMU)
benchmarking metrics are already in use by UK livestock industries (Mills et al. 2018; e.g. mg/kg, mg/population-corrected unit (PCU), average daily dose
(ADD), etc.). The relevance, applicability and adoptability of each metric depends greatly on the quality of input data.
This project explored the availability and quality of medicines use data available on UK beef farms to support benchmarking, along with strategies for collection
and reporting in practical and meaningful terms for promotion of responsible medicines use.
