This document outlines how Wawles will address the risks of the development and spread of antimicrobial resistance in animals and the environment. It discusses best agriculture best practices that align with antimicrobial stewardship.
The Welsh government released a five-year plan to decrease antimicrobial resistance in their livestock population. With an emphasis on prevention and judicious use of antimicrobials, the Welsh government aims to use antimicrobials wisely to preserve their effectiveness.
Research developed video games to assess how farmers' risk attitudes affect the spread of animal diseases. They found that if 10 percent of risk tolerant farmers adopted biosecurity measures animal disease was significantly reduced.
Researchers investigated how instantaneous feedback technology used for infection control in hospitals can boost biosecurity protocol compliance rates on poultry farms.
Researchers identified 200 E. coli strains, about half of which were resistant antimicrobials, in manure, air, and horse nostrils at Polish riding centers.
A farm biosecurity plan is an effective way to make sure a farm stays safe from pests and diseases.
A research project that used CRISPR to make cassava resistant to mosaic virus instead allowed the virus to mutate and be passed down to the next generation.
If biosecurity protocols are not followed consistently by all farm personnel and visitors, the biosecurity program will be ineffective.
Mechanically harvested agricultural products can be a source of tularemia infection, most likely due to contamination with animal carcasses.
This meeting will bring together researchers applying genomic based techniques to crop improvement and plant molecular breeding experts, along with traditional breeders who are interested in applying these techniques within their crops of interest.
