Fourteen Months Into the Veterinary Feed Directive- Cattle Producers Are Working Well With Their Vets

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 20:40:49 CST

Fourteen Months Into the Veterinary Feed Directive- Cattle Producers Are Working Well  With Their Vets Just a little over a year ago, the US livestock industry begin following the VFD- the Veterinary Feed Directive as developed by the Food and Drug Administration. Dr. Mike Apley with Kansas State University talked with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Director of Farm Programming Ron Hays about how the beef industry is doing in lining up its drug use practices with the VFD- and where FDA may be going next in overseeing antibiotics for animals.

Hays and Apley talked at the recent Cattle Industry Convention in Phoenix- and part one of their conversation is featured in today's Beef Buzz. Dr. Apley was on the Convention program, looking at the future of antibiotic use may look like for the beef cattle industry.

Dr. Apley believes that cattle producers have stepped up and worked well with their Veterinarian and that it has been a learning process of understanding exactly what the label says in how each drug may be used in feed- and exactly how products and drug regimens can be used together. He adds "we're waiting to see how FDA phases in enforcement on it."


Hays and Apley also what might be next in where federal and state regulations may be headed, with several states already passing laws that go beyond what the Federal regulations stipulate.


The Beef Buzz is a regular feature heard on radio stations around the region on the Radio Oklahoma Network and is a regular audio feature found on this website as well.
