LANSING — On August 17 at 3 p.m. the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is hosting a webinar on the veterinary feed directive (VFD) and where we are now for veterinarians and feed mills. Dr. James Averill, State Veterinarian and Animal Industry Division Director, will be going over the veterinarian-client-patient-relationship, what ensures a VFD order is valid and will work for feed mills, and minor species. Tim Lyons, Acting Animal Feed Program Specialist, will be reviewing the distributors responsibilities, blue bird labels, and issues that the Food and Drug Administration has seen and is addressing.
As a part of the webinar, both presenters will be taking questions on specific issues that both veterinarians and feed mills are seeing with the VFD process. If you’d like to attend, please register, and if you have questions prior to the webinar they can be submitted on the registration form. After registering, you will receive an individualized confirmation email containing details about how to join the webinar.
