The excessive use of antibiotics as preventive therapy in animal production has contributed to the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Consequently, treatments with antibiotics cannot be effective when they are necessary.
Awareness of this problem is increasing within the scientific community and governments, so that the European Union, Canada and the United States are publishing rules limiting the use of antibiotics in order to reduce antimicrobial resistance.
Consumers are more and more concerned about the food products that they consume - their origin, how they are produced, but above all, they want them to be safe.
HIPRA, as the reference in prevention for animal health, has dedicated its best efforts to the development of ORIGINS®, a pioneering programme of integral consultancy designed to create plans of raising livestock animals efficiently and competitively, without antibiotics or coccidiostats.
ORIGINS® is based on the identification of the factors that are key for production without antibiotics. This allows the classification of the farms in a company with the highest statistical probability of producing animals without using antibiotics or coccidiostats. Achieving this objective can also improve the overall results of the company, as it will identify the weak and strong points.
The project is backed by the HIPRAstats programme, which uses biostatistics and multivariate analysis to support the decision-making process.
ORIGINS® is a project designed by HIPRA that is ideal for poultry, swine, ruminants and fish.
HIPRAstats is the heart of ORIGINS®, and it is what differentiates this programme from any other in livestock production without antibiotics.
HIPRAstats is a service provided by HIPRA, which develops a unique predictive mathematical model for the producer. It is managed by epidemiologists who combine mathematical and statistical knowledge with experience of animal production.
This is the process, implemented by HIPRA, once the producer has joined the ORIGINS® programme:
The implementation of the ORIGINS® programme in livestock companies offers benefits at different levels:
