The purpose of the project is to investigate the occurrence of antimicrobial resistance related to use of antimicrobials and biosecurity in the Finnish pork production chain from nursing to slaughter and processing of meat. Additionally, utilising the information about production, management, medication and biosecurity, possible factors related to development and spread of antimicrobial resistance will be identified. Finally, consumers' exposure to resistant microbes is evaluated. The results

This poster presents the workflow of the project, when and where the samples are collected. Ten farms' antimicrobial treatments and indications were used to compile boxplots to visualise differences. Observed resistance features are also presented.
