CDFA releases Veterinary Feed Directive Summary Report

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) announces that its Antimicrobial Use and Stewardship (AUS) program has released the 2020-2021 Veterinary Feed Directive Summary Report.

The report is broken into four main sections: Executive Summary; Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) Data Tables; Data on 2020–2021 Manufacturing and Distribution; and a Conclusion that discusses CDFA’s future steps in working toward reducing antimicrobial resistance in animal agriculture. Each report section has been streamlined for comprehension with the goal of providing complete transparency into VFDs and how they play a part in maintaining and promoting a high standard of public health.

Report features include:

  • Links to both previously released VFD Summary Reports
  • Two years of aggregated data; 2020 and 2021
  • Streamlined information highlighting the VFD Data Tables
  • Updated AUS goals for education, outreach and VFD compliance
