Healthy animals are strong and do not need medicine, meaning no antibiotic resistance will develop. Farmers and vets are therefore required to use preventative measures to promote health in animals. As part of this, factors such as genetics, housing, feed and hygiene need to be considered. This means actors involved in livestock production and agriculture can fulfil their responsibility and help to preserve effective antibiotics within the meaning of the One Health principle.
