One of the biggest challenges we face nowadays is the reduction of antibiotics. Antimicrobial resistance makes a huge reduction necasary. Read about it for example in the Lancet series.
In the Netherlands we've made big steps. The Dutch organization SDa has been working on antibiotics reduction here. Their goal was to reduce antibiotics from 2007 to 2014 with 50%. They succeeded in their goal and are now trying to reduce it with 20% more. You can read about it in their report. We think it's a great achievement from farmers, vets and advisors!
