An important change is coming January 1st in the cattle industry. The Food and Drug Administration will begin tighter regulations on animal feeds that contain medicine. Producers will have to get a prescription from a veterinarian prior to using feed with various medicines in them. On November 8th, there will be an informational meeting at the Peppermill in Valentine for producers and veterinarians to learn more about these important regulations.
There will be speakers and time for questions and answers. For more information or to confirm that you will be there, call Interstate Commodities at 402 376 3565 or Bradley Cardinal at 389 2338. All producers are invited to attend the event which will begin at 6:30 with a dinner served at 7pm.
