In order to address the worldwide issue of developing resistance to antibiotics Soanes Poultry follows a “target zero antibiotic” policy.
The key measures of this policy are
Zero tolerance on the use of fluoroquinolone or colistin antibiotics
Specifically we seek to end the use of Macrolide antibiotics except where absolutely necessary and only after consultation with Soanes Poultry and our veterinary advisors
Work with growers to enhance biosecurity and disinfection routines
Develop alternative approaches to the use of antibiotics
Record and track antibiotic usage to identify growers that need support in reducing the need for treatment and where treatment has been administered, proactively seek reduction of antibiotics in successive placements of birds.
