ELECTRONIC TREATMENT AND HEALTH REGISTERS AND A JOINT DATABASE AS CORE TOOLS OF THE SUISSANO/SAFETYPLUS PROGRAM

In order to improve transparency concerning antibiotic consumption in Swiss pig production and to concurrently measure antibiotic use and health parameters the SuisSano/Safetyplus program was started in 2015. The most important evolution step in 2018 is a joint database connected with electronic treatment and health registers, which are obligatory for all participating farms. It is expected that more than 90% of all pig farms in Switzerland will participate at the program.
