SVM to cohost Oct. 6 workshop on antimicrobial drug use in food animals
Livestock producers, feed suppliers, UCCE livestock advisors and veterinarians are invited to a workshop to gain a comprehensive understanding of two Guidance for Industry documents (GFIs) issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regarding the use of medically important antimicrobial drugs in food-producing animals, as well as the FDA's revised Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) rule.
The workshop, hosted by the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis and by the Farm Foundation, is also an opportunity to gain insights into the changes needed to meet the requirements.
The free workshop will be held in Gladys Valley Hall at UC Davis on Oct. 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. To register, go to http://bit.ly/1MY2Uy1.
