Check out this video for an overview of creating a VFD in the GVL platform.

You are a veterinarian at Cattle Veterinary Services. Your client Robert Smith has a herd of 100 beef cattle located on his ranch near Amarillo, Texas that need to be treated with chlortetracycline through their feed. You decided the cattle need 35 g/ton of chlortetracycline for 183 days and not to be fed in combinations of other animal drugs. Robert Smith will be purchasing the medicated feed from Animal Health International in Amarillo. Before Robert can feed the chlortetracycline to his cattle, you will need to write a Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD). Write a VFD using the following information. You can create your own addresses for the owner and animal locations.
