Feed The Feed Program regulates products fed to animals that are produced for human consumption and is part of a nation-wide effort to help ensure the safety of meat, milk and eggs. It also provides consumer protection for users of livestock and pet foods.


Protection of livestock/pet food industries and consumers is accomplished through:

  • BSE prevention inspections

  • Complaint investigations

  • Inspections of commercial feed/ pet food manufacturers and distributors

  • Label reviews for truth-in-labeling

  • Medicated Feed Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP)

    Inspections in cooperation with FDA
  • Sampling and analysis of feed products
