NOAH/Lantra Animal Medicines Best Practice (AMBP) farmer training delivers solution to meet new Red Tractor requirements

NOAH’s Animal Medicines Best Practice (AMBP) farmer training can help fulfil the new Red Tractor standards that make the completion of medicines training for their beef, sheep and pig producers a   requirement.

Produced in partnership with Lantra, the AMBP programme offers a flexible and affordable solution for farmer training in the responsible and safe use of medicines, as the requirement is introduced from 1 November. Including species-specific modules, thetraining has already proved its worth to dairy farmers since a similar requirement was introduced for that sector in 2019. Almost 800farmers across all sectors have already used the programme since its launch in 2018. 

The AMBP online farmer training course is easy to access and allows farmers to complete training when it suits them best. It not only covers the responsible and safe use of all medicines, including antibiotics, but also includes key hot topic areas, which will be of interest to each sector. 

Dawn Howard, NOAH chief executive, says: “Years of collaborative work, focused on the responsible use of antibiotics, has shown how livestock sectors can achieve ambitious targets and reducing the need to treat whilst maintaining the health and welfare of livestock. As we move towards the long-term sustainable use of antibiotics, these new Red Tractor training requirements will helpdemonstrate how farmers are supplying high quality, nutritious and safe food from our farmed animals, and will support them as theyproduce this food from healthy animals, more sustainably.”
