In part two of Feeding Resistance, Philippa Thornton, ESG Analyst, continues the discussion on antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
Joining Philippa to discuss how we can move beyond antibiotics in farming systems is Dr Nataliya Roth, from DSM, a company focused on solutions for health, nutrition and bioscience who are developing novel animal health products that help reduce the need for antibiotics, and Dr Kristen Reyher a veterinarian and Professor of Veterinary Epidemiology and Population Health at the University of Bristol, who works alongside veterinarians and a variety of livestock stakeholders to help reduce antimicrobial use on farms in the UK.
In the second instalment of FAIRR’s two-part series on AMR, they discuss what alternative products are available on the market and what shifts need to occur on farms in order to reduce the amount of antibiotics used.
FAIRR’s latest report, Feeding Resistance: Antimicrobial stewardship in the animal health industry, is available on our website and explores the role of animal pharmaceuticals in driving AMR, and how investors can engage the sector to drive better stewardship.
