The Veterinary Feed Directive Rules and How They Will Affect You

Sponsored by the Agricultural and Food Law Consortium

Topic:lance roasa

The new Veterinary Feed Directive rules represent the largest change in FDA policy around antibiotics in animal feeds in decades. The VFD requirements will change the way feed is ordered, mixed and fed. Veterinarians, producers and feed distributors will have to comply with the new regulations and still remain profitable and efficient. This webinar will aid veterinarians, producers, and distributors in their compliance and address some of the nuances of the regulations. This webinar should help reduce liability and will also provide real-life tips on effective and efficient ways to use, write, and store VFDs.
