The National Working Group for Meat Poultry Health Care (ETU) has since 2007 collected data about antimicrobial use for meat poultry in Finland through a yearly questionnaire aimed to the companies breeding and rearing nearly 100 % of the broilers and turkeys in Finland.
The main reasons for the need of antimicrobial medications were Tenosynovitis (S. aureus) of the broiler GP and P flocks and Necrotic Enteritis of the meat turkeys. Penicillin and amoxicillin have been the most commonly used antibiotics.
