Residues of veterinary pharmaceuticals may enter water and soil via manure and dung. Farmers can reduce this environmental impact through their practices. These teaching materials have been designed for advanced learners in agriculture. They consist of presentation slides and accompanying background material. The slides are designed for a 90-minute lecture. The teaching materials are available for teachers and learners to use freely.

The aim of the teaching materials is to inform livestock owners about the side effects of their actions on the environment and to motivate them to continue engaging with this topic. They should be made aware of the need to use veterinary medicines in an environmentally friendly manner and give greater consideration to alternative measures for maintaining the health of individual animals and livestock.

The teaching materials were developed under the lead of the Ecologic Institute for the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA).
