Spooked by the VFD? Visit the VFD News Center

Veterinarians, feed-mill managers and producers haunted by the new veterinary feed directive (VFD) rules don’t need to hire paranormal investigators to chase away their fears.

Simply visit Poultry Health Today’s VFD News Center — the only VFD information site focused solely on the poultry industry.

“Much has been said and written about the VFD over the past 2 years, but there’s still considerable confusion about which medications are affected, as well as the roles and responsibilities of veterinarians, feed mill managers and producers,” said Jon Schaeffer, DVM, director of poultry technical services for Zoetis, which sponsors the news website.

“The VFD News Center was developed specifically to help the poultry industry better understand the nuances of the VFD and, most importantly, what the key players in the process need to do now to ensure a smooth transition,” Schaeffer added.

In addition to presenting news and updates about the VFD and articles about responsible antibiotic use, the engaging, colorful website contains several features designed to cut through the clutter of official documents. For example: 

    • VFD Extra focuses on key points of government publications and Q&As.


    • VFD Quiz is an interactive feature to test visitors’ knowledge and then link them to specific publications for more information.


    • VFD Library provides a complete set of helpful reference documents and brochures.


    • VFD Countdown features a timeclock to remind visitors of how many days, hours and minutes they have to get ready.


The VFD News Center issues periodic news updates to keep poultry veterinarians, feed-mill managers and producers posted on the latest news and insights on implementing the VFD. To subscribe, click here.
