New Antibiotic Regulations

The new Food and Drug Administration regulations affect all U.S. poultry, livestock and pig producers and exhibitors. The new antibiotic regulations took effect on January 1, 2017.

Although certification in the Pork Quality Assurance® Plus or Youth Pork Quality Assurance® Plus program should provide a good foundation, Koeman says some new requirements, such as keeping original copies of VFDs for two years (producer, veterinarian and feed mill) will be adjustments.

To help keep things simple, the National Pork Board has introduced the USCARE checklist. For additional information about the antibiotic changes, click here.
