Veterinary Feed Directive

By now most of us have at least heard of the VFD, which came into effect on Jan 1, 2017.  This federal law now changes the way that we use FEED and WATER antibiotics.  From that point forward, we can only use these antibiotics as labeled, and with a veterinarians oversight.  Simply put, it means that we can no longer use antibiotics in minerals for footrot or pinkeye, as it was never labeled for such.

This law will NOT affect injectables like penicillin or LA200, ionophores, fly controls or boluses.

Give us a call if you have any questions!
