What Our Customers
Are Saying...
“We've used a lot of Lindner 684 in our program depending on the hog, being able to keep one with enough flesh and condition to run the jackpot shows and into the end point it has been a great product for us!”
Baxter Howell
“Really like the 680 series for ease of use. Advantages include adding depth and dimension to gilts that are a little harder bodied. ”
Karl Peter
“Consumption rate is tremendous, growth rate has been good for us, and it gets them off to a really good start, and enables us to get pigs ready to sell at 6-8 weeks in order to perform for our customers.”
Ben Moyer
“Really have liked the consumption and driven appetite. Haven’t seen a feed where they consume and want to eat as much as we have seen with 688. ”
Shane Brinning
“There are a bunch of choices out there for feeds but you have to feed something that works, Lindner United is the feed that gets it done from weaning to taking pictures at the backdrop!”
Travis Platt
“Lifesaver, to us, is a show day, electrolyte supplement that really puts body and fill in one to give them that extra edge and show day look. We also use it in daily feeding to help increase appetite. ”
Alan Hoffman
“TNT enhances rib shape, flank, and body. Palatability in this top dress really makes hogs go to it.”
Matt Miller
“I constantly get asked what we do at Team Sloan to get our hogs ready to sell. I always tell people it is very simple, fresh wood shavings and 612. No question, this is the best starter I have used to get babies bloomy without giving them a hard look. ”
Troy Sloan
“684 is the absolute best finishing feed I have found for hogs that need to be softened up while maintaining adequate muscle shape and continuing to grow. Consumption on this particular feed is second to none, especially when fed wet, and in today's show ring that's an absolute must! ”
Troy Sloan


A veterinary feed directive (VFD) is a written (nonverbal) statement issued by a licensed veterinarian in the course of the veterinarian’s professional practice that orders the use of a VFD drug or combination VFD drug in or on an animal feed. This written statement authorizes the client to obtain and use animal feed, bearing or containing a VFD drug or combination VFD drug, to treat the client’s animals in compliance with the conditions for approved use.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published a new regulation that has changed the veterinary feed directive (VFD) process due to increased concern surrounding the use of antimicrobial drugs used in food producing animals. Changes to the regulation will help support the judicious use of antibiotics and limit antimicrobial resistance, for products used to treat human illness. The agency’s effort will result in eliminating growth promotion use of medically important drugs in feed by January 1, 2017.

FDA VFD Inspection Tool

Our industry was informed of the FDA’s new compliance measurement strategy for the Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD).  This program has two purposes:

1. Gauge the level of compliance in the field, to see if more guidance is needed for veterinarians, distributors and producers

2. See what guidance is needed for FDA/State investigators during an inspection process

The FDA said they will use the VFD Inspection Tool and will use the “one forward and one back” process, meaning if a VFD is reviewed at a feed mill, it can be traced to the veterinarian and the producer.  As this is a pilot program, feedback on the inspection tool will be used for improvement purposes.  The FDA expects this tool to become routine, following the pilot period.
