Summary

Main research questions:
Antimicrobial resistance (AR) in the food-chain is a concern due to risk of treatment failure of humans.
- Do restrictions on antimicrobial (AB) usage in organic pig production lead to lower AR levels in organic pigs compared to conventional ones?
- Is lower AR a quality trait of organic pork?
- Does slaughtering of organic and conventional pigs together abolish this potential quality trait?
- Can markers for imprudent AR use in organic pig herds be identified?
