Reported antibiotic use in 90 swine farms in Alberta



Reported antibiotic use in 90 swine farms in Alberta



Canadian Veterinary Journal 47(5): 446-452



Antibiotic use was described using a convenience sample of 90 Alberta swine farms representing approximately 25% of the Alberta market swine production. Data on the use of antibiotics were collected through an on-farm interview questionnaire. The vast majority of antibiotics were used in feed. The chlortetracycline/sulfamethazine/penicillin combination and tylosin were the most frequently used in-feed antibiotics in weaners and growers/finishers, respectively.
