Veterinary Feed Directive Starts Jan 1

Veterinary Feed Directive Starts Jan 1

December 27, 2016

A few days from now, major changes take place in the way livestock producers administer medically important antibiotics to food-producing animals.
Effective January 1, 2017, the Veterinary Feed Directive goes into effect and the Farm Foundation is working to help educate livestock producers about the changes.

Under the Veterinary Feed Directive, or VFD issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a written order will be required before a feed company can mix medicated feed for sale to a livestock producer. As part of those rules, producers are required to have a veterinary client-patient relationship.

The Farm Foundation has more information available to producers at http://www.farmfoundation.org/vfdrules/#usfda.
