AMU Benchmarking Tool

Published 19 December 17

To complement the antibiotic calculator, the University of Nottingham have also created a Benchmarking Tool, designed to make benchmarking dairy farm antimicrobial usage rapid and simple. Once the calculator has been used for several farms, the benchmarking tool can be used to extract antibiotic usage data from multiple farms at once, enabling a rapid comparison between farms. Benchmark graphs can be produced (and anonymised if required), to be used directly in AMU benchmarking meetings.

Please remember all antibiotics (and other medicines) policies should be discussed with your own veterinary surgeon.
