Plan ahead for the winter months 


Over the next several months, we can all expect to feel the effects of “climate” change. Besides the change brought on by harsh winter weather and its impact on the livestock industry, January will bring a major change in the political climate with the many unknowns of a new administration. Expect changes to the business climate for your veterinary customers and their producers with the new requirements to the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) that go into effect on January 1, 2017. Knowing the seasonal products and procedures used by your clients, understanding the VFD-affected drugs, the new stipulations and their impact to your customers, and keeping tabs on how not only volatile weather, but a volatile economy may affect them will make you a valued partner.
