Lexinton, KY - Alltech has renewed 18 products registered with the Feed Verified program through IMI Global, a division of Where Food Comes From, Inc. Since 2015, Alltech has registered products as part of a third-party verification program, which allows U.S. livestock producers to utilize Alltech additives and nutritional solutions while participating in approved verification and certification programs.

The products included in the Feed Verified program have been evaluated to ensure that they meet the requirements of the verification claims indicated in the approved supplier listing. Alltech also works with Validus, another division of Where Food Comes From, to confirm that food safety and traceability practices are in place at the manufacturer level.

"With many producers now participating in niche market and value-added programs, it is even more important to have our products included as part of IMI Global's Feed Verified program," said Bryan Sanderson, U.S. beef business manager for Alltech. "Alltech's wide range of approved products can help producers prevent animal health challenges whose occurrence and subsequent treatment may potentially disqualify them from a certain program."

The IMI Global Feed Verified webpage is a convenient resource that allows beef producers to search for and incorporate pre-approved products and solutions into their feeding program to enhance production. If a product is listed on the Feed Verified website, producers can use that product to qualify for a specific program, such as the USDA Non-Hormone-Treated Cattle (NHTC) program, without requiring an approval letter from their feed supplier.

Using non-approved products that are not listed on the website could result in cattle being disqualified from a specific program and unable to access the potential premiums associated with that program, IMI Global recommends reaching out to your verification specialist if it is not listed.

"Alltech has been involved in the WFCF Feed Verified program for a long time. We are excited to continue adding their products to the program. Beef producers benefit when products are already verified as it ensures they're eligibility in various value-added programs. Alltech's commitment to the Feed Verified program is a win for the beef industry," said Doug Stanton, senior vice president of sales and business development at IMI Global.
