Launched by RUMA chairman Peter Allen at the “Healthy Animals - Safe Food” conference organised by the National Office of Animal Health, the guidelines come in two formats.

The short guide is aimed at farmers while a more detailed document is aimed at advisers and vets.

Introducing the new guidelines, Peter Allen said: "Following our recent update of the antimicrobial guidelines, this launch is a logical next step to help ensure that animals do not become ill in the first place. This is helping to confirm and support the maxim - Healthy animals - safe food.”

The guidelines are available on the RUMA website and can be downloaded free of charge.
