The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry #203 entitled ``Ensuring Safety of Animal Feed Maintained and Fed On-Farm.''
This draft guidance is intended to help animal producers (persons who feed animals) develop and implement on-farm practices to ensure the safety of animal feed maintained and fed to animals on the farm.
In this document, "farm'' means animal production units such as integrated poultry grower operations, swine finishing units, and cattle feedlots. This document outlines basic measures that may be taken to maintain the safety of all types of feed held on the farm for use in animal production. This draft guidance recommends establishing measures to ensure the acquisition of safe feed and maintenance of its safety until the feed is offered to animals in the farm environment. This document does not address feed manufacture, which also may occur on farms.
