Understanding the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD):
Effective January 1, 2017, the U.S. FDA has implemented new regulations addressing
on-farm antibiotic use in feed-animal production. This affects everyone (including
4-H members as youth producers) keeping, owning, and/or raising food-production
Dr. Heather Lane, DVM, MPH, DACVPM will provide an overview of the FDA’s new regulations and what
biosecurity measures one can take to reduce the need for antibiotic use.
