GLOBALG.A.P., as an active participant in the EU-funded "HealthyLivestock" research program and a member of the project consortium, would like to use the attached newsletter to inform its stakeholders about the project’s progress.

HealthyLivestock studies the effects of enhanced animal health and welfare on reducing the need to use antimicrobials in pig and poultry farming.

GLOBALG.A.P. acts in work package 6 of the program and evaluates the results of the research institutes as to the possibility of integrating additional requirements into the GLOBALG.A.P. livestock standards. These requirements will focus on antimicrobial reduction and improved animal welfare in livestock farms seeking certification according to the GLOBALG.A.P. Integrated Farm Assurance standard.

We hope you will enjoy the newsletter.
