On January 1, 2017 a new Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation for the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) went into effect. This regulation will affect all food-producing animals –no matter how large or small the operation, including livestock used in youth livestock shows.

With the new regulation, youth must work with their veterinarian to obtain a signed VFD order before purchasing and feeding livestock with feeds containing feed grade antibiotics, such as chlortetracycline (CTC) or Tylosin.

The new QA Curriculum called Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) is now active. Anyone who has not registered for the LQA online course for 2017 should now navigate to the NEW online YQCA course at yqca.learngrow.io.
