The Wisconsin Veterinary Medical Association Food Armor® Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) for Proper Drug Use is a proven, on-farm program that delivers a verifiable drug quality assurance program by defining the roles and responsibilities of those using it. The objective is to identify potential hazards and to identify critical control points to limit these hazards. Proper implementation of this program should ensure food safety, as well as transparency and accountability for appropriate drug use on a farm.

The Food Armor® HACCP for Proper Drug Use Farm Certification Program is the only comprehensive program of its type that delivers a verifiable drug quality assurance program by defining the roles and responsibilities of those using it. The objective is to identify potential hazards and to identify critical control points to limit these hazards. Proper implementation of this program ensures food safety, as well as transparency and accountability for proper drug use on a farm.

Food Armor® HACCP for Proper Drug Use is the “how-to” for achieving food safety and proper drug use on farms. This non-regulatory approach ensures a collaborative relationship between the farm’s veterinarian(s), the owner/managers, and the cow-side employees – the individuals that make up the VCPR team. Each HACCP plan is tailored to the individual farm, and the Food Armor™ program is designed to empower the veterinarian team and the farm personnel as they work together.

 

The NC State College of Veterinary Medicine is proud to host this course
