End date
The elemental goal of FARAD is the production of safe foods of animal origin through the prevention and mitigation of volatile chemical (drug, pesticide, natural toxins, and environmental contaminant) residues in food animal products. FARAD's objectives are to identify, extract, assemble, evaluate and distribute reviewed information about residue avoidance and mitigation to people involved in residue avoidance programs throughout the United States. The types of information available through FARAD include basic veterinary drug registration information, withdrawal times, indications for use, as well as complex technical information about the pharmacokinetics and toxicokinetics of drugs and chemicals in food animals.
