suppliers of gamebirds and game feeds. Please read it carefully and take action.
Head of advisory services at Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, Roger Draycott, said: “It is very good news that the game sector has come together so effectively to deliver an impressive reduction in antibiotic usage. However, we need to reduce usage further and the GWCT will be working closely with our members and advisory clients to help achieve the new targets without compromising animal welfare.”
