Upcoming Noble Foundation Seminar Focuses on Veterinary Feed DirectiveMon, 23 May 2016 16:27:37 CDT
A new federal regulation that affects livestock producers, veterinarians and the feed industry is set to take full effect on Jan. 1, 2017.
To help prepare all parties impacted by this regulation, The Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation will host a Veterinary Feed Directive seminar from 1-5 p.m., Thursday, June 16, at the Noble Foundation Kruse Auditorium.
“Implementation of the Veterinary Feed Directive is a significant event in the livestock industry,” said Bryan Nichols, livestock consultant. “Producers, veterinarians and livestock feed providers all must be aware of the implications of this regulation before it comes into full effect so the transition can be as seamless as possible.”
To help provide understanding into the various facets of the new regulation, the Noble Foundation has put together a group of expert speakers that represents academia, the veterinary community and the feed industry.
- L.D. Barker, D.V.M., veterinarian: Obtaining a Veterinary Feed Directive from Your Veterinarian.
- Brian Lubbers, D.V.M., Ph.D., Kansas State University Microbial Surveillance Lab director: Antibiotic Regulations and Resistance in Cattle Production.
- Richard Sellers, American Feed Industry Association senior vice president of public policy and education: Veterinary Feed Directive and the Feed Industry.
“This topic has generated a lot of questions,” Nichols said. “This is a great opportunity to hear from experts in multiple fields who can answer many of those questions.”
There is no registration fee for the seminar, but preregistration is encouraged. To register, please visit www.noble.org/agevents or contact Maggie Scott at 580-224-6375.
