Consultations on Registration Requirements for Gut Modifiers

September 19, 2022 | Videos

National Cattle Feeders’ Association (NCFA) and the Canadian Cattle Association (CCA) have sent a letter to CFIA with input and comments regarding the CFIA consultation on registration requirements for gut modifiers.

NCFA and CCA welcomes the opportunity to comment on this increasingly critical component of the animal feed regulatory system in Canada. A consistent supply of feed and associated feed ingredients is essential to the well-being of the Canadian beef industry. We strongly support innovation in feeds including the many advantages that gut modifiers have for cattle health and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from enteric fermentation. We also strongly support the work CFIA does to ensure that both animal health and consumer safety is protected through the feed approval system.
