BPG-AB stands for Better Producing No AntiBiotics. The aim of this project, financed by Belgian Pork Group, is to reduce antimicrobial usage on pig farms. The farms which have already low antimicrobial usage are coached towards antibiotic free pig production. Attention is paid to antimicrobial usage, technical parameters and potential problems at the farm. On each farm a biosecurity audit is performed by means of a Biocheck.UGent survey (https://www.biocheck.ugent.be). Farm-specific advice is given based upon the herd situation. The focus of this project is the prevention of diseases, by improving biosecurity and reducing antimicrobial usage.
