Antibiotic residue-prevention manual available in Spanish
National Milk Producers Federation has released a revised version of its Spanish-language residue-prevention manual Prevención de residuos de fármacos en la leche y la carne for 2013.
As an area of focus for the National Dairy FARM Program, the manual can be found on the FARM Program's website. This version was translated to Spanish from the revised 2013 Milk and Dairy Beef Drug Residue Prevention Manual, which was released in the fall.
The manual is the Spanish version of the FARM Program's review of appropriate antibiotic use in dairy animals
Additions to the 2013 version include a section on avoiding potential residue violations from extra-label drug use in an unapproved class of cattle, cephalosporin extra-label use prohibitions, as well as an updated drug and test kit list.
