Sustainable Agriculture

Animal Health Ireland’s mission is “To contribute to a profitable and sustainable farming and agri-food sector through improved animal health.” In this context, sustainability may be thought of in economic, social, environmental and ethical terms.

In addition to the direct animal health benefits delivered by our programmes and activities, these also contribute directly or indirectly to a series of sustainability goals prioritised by our members (including the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine) and highlighted in a recent farmer survey.

These are detailed in a number of strategy documents and action plans, and given effect by our membership of a number of stakeholder groups and programmes addressing these issues.
