80 Years of Munson Quality Feeds

Deadline Approaching for Antibiotics in Feed

Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will implement new regulations on how medications are to be fed to livestock. These new rules, called the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) will change how you obtain and use feed-grade medications on your farm. Examples of medications regulated under the VFD include: AS-700, Neomycin, Oxytetracycline, Tylosin (Tylan), Chlortetracycline (Aureo 4g or 10g), NT, Sulfamethazine, and Virginiamycin.

Some important points:

  • You, your mill and your veterinarian will need to keep
    records for two years relating to each load of feed
    containing these medications
  • In these records, you must detail what animals the feed
    was fed to, how many, when you started feeding it, and
    when you quit feeding it.
  • You will also need a close relationship with a licensed
    veterinarian, who will issue the VFD, and with your local
    feed mill. The veterinarian will write the prescription
    and forward a copy to us. Then we’ll make the feed
    according to the VFD, and you will be responsible for
    feeding it according to the directions in the VFD.
  • If there is any feed left over after the prescription ends,
    that feed must be discarded.
The FDA has notified Munson Lakes Nutrition and other feed manufacturers that it will be checking mill records and making random stops at farms and veterinarians. Records at all three locations must match.

If you still have questions, please contact your veterinarian or your MLN sales nutritionist for help in understanding and complying with the new VFD rules.
