VFD Survival Strategy Webinar Series Announced

by | Jul 15, 2016 | News | 0 comments

An upcoming “VFD Survival Strategy” webinar series, hosted by GlobalVetLINK, will provide information and resources from leading veterinarians and industry experts to help with preparation for compliance with Veterinary Feed Directives (VFDs).

With the new VFD regulations changes coming in January 2017, many in the industry still have questions about how the changes will affect their business. The VFD Survival Strategy webinars are offered for individual stakeholder groups – including feed distributors, veterinarians and producers of swine, beef, dairy and poultry.

Topics covered during the webinars include education about VFDs and the coming changes, clarification about interpretation of the rule, actions to take now to prepare and resources available to help with compliance. Each webinar will also provide an opportunity for webinar attendees to ask presenters questions about the 2017 VFD transition.
