Scientists at the University of South Wales have been working in partnership with Hay-on-Wye-based Feed, Food & Future, on a research project to address the challenge of increased antibiotic resistance in pigs. Antibiotic resistance is one of the most pressing current threats to global health. Since the health of humans, animals and the environment are closely linked, this study helps to make advances towards an overall reduction in antibiotic use and slow the development of resistant organisms. Cutting the use of antibiotics in the food chain is one way to address part of the problem.
