Alicia Boor.tif.jpg

Cattle producers have a number of opportunities to increase their understanding of the impact of the Food and Drug Administration’s Veterinary Feed Directive at meetings across Kansas this fall offered by K-State Research and Extension. In the central part of the state, a series of meetings has been scheduled for December 13, in Great Bend and Pratt and Dec. 14 in Kinsley and South Hutch.
Dr. Gregg Hanzlicek will also cover additional topics that center on emerging threats to beef cow herds in this area, such as Anaplasmosis and Johne’s Disease.
Jan. 1, 2017, is the date that all of the changes associated with the new VFD regulation will go into effect. To prepare, producers need to become familiar with the regulation and the associated procedures. K-State Research and Extension in cooperation with K-State’s College of Veterinary Medicine will present information at numerous sites across the state to help producers, feed distributors and veterinarians understand the details.
