The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that revised labels established according to Guidance Documents #209 and #213 will go into effect in December 2016. There will also be new regulations regarding how veterinarians will authorize the use of medically important antibiotics in the feed of food animals.
Michael Apley, DVM and professor of Production Medicine and Clinical Pharmacology with Kansas State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, explained some of the changes producers and veterinarians can expect to see as a result of the new regulations at K-State’s Beef Stocker Field Day on Sept. 25, 2014.
