VFD Resources for My Show Animal
January 1st marked the effective start date of the veterinary feed directive (VFD) regulations. During the January 4th Animal Care Wednesday Webinar we heard from two great speakers on resources for show animals regarding these new VFD regulations. Bernie O’Rourke, University of Wisconsin-Madison Extension Youth Livestock Specialist, shared how Wisconsin prepared their youth exhibitor families with information on the VFD regulations. Rob Eirich, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension Educator and Director of Beef Quality Assurance, reviewed some of the background to the regulation and provided additional resources.
