An interactive webinar to help the poultry and livestock industries understand the FDA’s new rules for the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) has been set for Wednesday, June 17, at 2 pm EDT.

Key players in the VFD process — veterinarians, nutritionists, feed-mill managers and live-production managers — are encouraged to attend this informative session.

The webinar will be led by two regulatory experts:
