Purina announces VFD software
Purina Animal Nutrition has selected the RxExpress™ software platform from New Planet Technologies as its tool to help meet feed documentation requirements of the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD). This federal regulation mandates documentation of a veterinarian’s approval to feed or distribute medicated feed-additive antibiotics that are deemed medically important to production livestock. It goes into effect Jan. 1, 2017.
Livestock producers, feed manufacturers and feed distributors are required to retain documentation of VFD orders. A turn-key software solution, RxExpress™ can be used to generate, distribute and store electronic VFD orders.
