Objectives of the Presentation:
- To discuss the strategies behind the changes of feed additives from OTC to VFD
- Requirements for documentation of use of all antibiotics written by veterinarians
- To teach producers what is required for documentation of antibiotic use
- Drugs that are still legal to use that are OTC use
- To review importance of judicious use of antimicrobials
- Injectable antibiotics that are still available for OTC use
Why Should you Attend:
Significant changes to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration's Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) regulation are just ahead. With fewer than 3 months until the final rule becomes effective, now is the time for producers, feed mills and veterinarians to ensure that they are armed with the knowledge necessary to effectively implement VFDs. Attend this training to understand the transition and to better understand the guidelines put forward by FDA.
- To discuss the changes of OTC feed additives to VFD status
- To review documentation for veterinarians
- To review documentations for producers
- To review documentation for vendors and feed mills
- Exempt drugs that are still allowed for OTC use
- Importance of judicious use of antimicrobials, and the VCPR

This is a new FDA regulation that will be required for all food animal producers, veterinarians and feed mill distributors for documentation and the judicious use of antimicrobials in food animals.
