Are You Ready for the Change?
"Beginning on January 1, 2017 the Food and Drug Administration has new rules that will apply to the use of certain antimicrobials in animal feed. Antimicrobials that are important for human medicine, also known as medically important antimicrobials, will be available for use in feed only when authorized by a licensed veterinarian under the Veterinarian Feed Directive rule, or VFD rule. Medically important antimicrobials will no longer be available over the counter, for use in feed. "
