The Red Tractor deadline for submitting Q2 (April-June) antibiotic usage data for pigs is Thursday August 11 2022.
You can enter your data at: emb-pigs.ahdb.org.uk, using your AHDB Pig Hub and eAML2 login details.
The 2021 electronic medicine book (eMB) data, which represents roughly 95% of pigs slaughtered in the UK, shows that the amount of antibiotics used to treat pigs on UK farms fell by 17%, for a total reduction of 69% since 2015.
Asides from collecting the pig sector’s antibiotic usage data, by submitting your farm’s antibiotic figures to the eMB, the eMB can also be used as your holding’s full legal medicine book.
