The French Ecoantibio plan was a success : the exposure of pigs to antibiotics decreased by 41% from 2012 to 2016, while the initial target was -25%.
But beyond this overall assessment of antibiotic sales by pharmaceutical companies, farm surveys are important to describe more precisely how antibiotics are used. The three INAPORC panels, implemented in 2010, 2013 and 2016, meet this objective to produce detailed references on antibiotics usage, based on representative sample of farms.
