Integrated poultry companies can store VFDs in one place

Integrated poultry companies that obtain a veterinary feed directive from a staff veterinarian for use in company-owned feed mills and flocks can store the VFD forms in one place.

Under the new VFD rules, the veterinarian writing the order must keep the original VFD, and the feed mill and producer must keep a copy for 2 years. This raised the question of whether integrated poultry companies needed to keep copies in three different places or if records could be consolidated.

“If one firm represents the veterinarian, the [feed mill] and the client, it is acceptable for the VFD to be stored in one location, provided that everyone required to have a copy has access and can provide a copy to the FDA investigator upon request,” said William T. Flynn, DVM, MS, deputy director for science policy, FDA Center for Veterinary Medicine, in a recent letter to the Farm Foundation.[1]
