A live webcast will be available of a Farm Foundation workshop, Monday, on stewardship of antibiotic use in food-producing animals.

The Denver Colorado based workshop, one of 12 Farm Foundation is hosting across the country, is an opportunity for participants to gain a comprehensive understanding of two Guidance for Industry rules issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. FDA issued the guidance regarding the use of medically important antimicrobial drugs in food-producing animals. The Workshops also cover the FDA’s revised Veterinary Feed Directive. These actions mean some drugs will see label changes allowing only therapeutic uses, and use of some drugs will require veterinary oversight in the form of a veterinarian’s prescription. The free webcast starts at 7:30 a.m., Pacific Time, Monday, September 28.
