The scoop on VFD

As the January 1, 2017 deadline for the implementation of the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) nears, veterinarians, producers and feed mills begin the transition to new compliance rules. Good news for ShowBloom customers, the all-natural supplement can still be fed to all species with no additional documentation needed.   In short, VFD will help regulate that all medications in feed and those that are water-soluble will require producers and feeder to have a signed form by a veterinarian familiar with their operation.

Nowhere I’d Rather Be
