LNC's Commitment to VFD's
Livestock Nutrition Center is fully committed to filling VFD's for our customers. On January 1, 2017 - the 2015 Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) final ruling by the FDA will go into effect.
As most are aware, in general, the revisions to VFD’s has added additional “medically important” antibiotics to the VFD drug list. These revisions will reclassify certain over-the-counter (OTC) antibiotics now require a VFD (also referred to as a “VFD order”) from a veterinarian for use after 1/1/17. This is particularly important to our customers, as chlortetracycline (CTC) is included as a VFD drug. Therefore, the continued use of CTC must now be accompanied by a VFD order through your veterinarian to us - for either LNC customized feed blends, or range mineral products (FortiGraze) that are purchased from LNC.
