The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation is one of the signatories of a joint communication on reducing antibiotic use in gamebirds, which is intended for all UK gamebird rearers, any shoots that release game, game feed suppliers, vets who look after gamebirds and everyone else with an interest in gamebird husbandry and gameshooting.

The joint communication comes from an unprecedented range of professional and representative bodies and it is also supported by specialist gamebird veterinary practices and by many suppliers of gamebirds and game feed.

A spokesman for the National Gamekeepers’ Organisation said: “Please read the joint communication carefully and act on its advice and recommendations as a matter of urgency. It is important that the gameshooting sector plays its part – and is seen to be playing its part – in reducing the use of antibiotics in gamebird husbandry.”
