(2) "Director" means the Director of the Oregon Department of Agriculture.

(3) "Consultant-Formulated" feed means commercial feed manufactured for a final purchaser based upon formula and/or specifications developed for the feed purchaser by an independent consultant or feed manufacturer.

(4) "Independent consultant" means any person who provides animal nutritional formulation to a feed purchaser as a service rather than the sale of feed.

(5) Principal Display Panel means the out-facing side of the feed tag, or if no tag, the part of the label that is most likely to be displayed, presented, shown or examined under normal or customary conditions of sale.

(6) "Lot identifier" means a unique identifier for each lot, batch or production run that enables the manufacturer to accurately trace the complete manufacturing and distribution history of the product. A lot identifier is an individual lot, batch or production run number, code, date, or other suitable identification applied to the label, container, or package. In the case of bulk feed the lot identifier is on a label, invoice, or shipping document accompanying the feed.

Label Information

In addition to the requirements set forth in ORS 633.026, commercial feeds, other than custom mixed feed shall be labeled with the information prescribed in this regulation.

(1) Product name and brand name if any:

(a) The brand or product name must be appropriate for the intended use of the feed and must not be misleading. If the name indicates the feed is made for a specific use, the character of the feed must conform therewith. A commercial feed for a particular animal class, must be suitable for that purpose;

(b) Commercial, registered brand or trade names are not permitted in guarantees or ingredient listings and only in the product name of feeds produced by or for the firm holding the rights to such name;

(c) The name of a commercial feed shall not be derived from one or more ingredients of a mixture to the exclusion of other ingredients and shall not be one representing any components of a mixture unless all components are included in the name: Provided, that if any ingredient or combination of ingredients is intended to impart a distinctive characteristic to the product which is of significance to the purchaser, the name of that ingredient or combination of ingredients is quantitatively guaranteed in the guaranteed analysis, and the brand or product name is not otherwise false or misleading;

(d) The word “protein” shall not be permitted in the product name of a feed that contains added non-protein nitrogen;

(e) When the name carries a percentage value, it shall be understood to signify protein and /or equivalent protein content only, even though it may not explicitly modify the percentage with the word “protein”. Provided other percentage values may be permitted if they are followed by the proper description and conform to good labeling practice. Digital numbers shall not be used in such a manner as to be misleading or confusing to the customer. E.G.: “Dairy 16%” containing only 14% Crude Protein is misleading;

(f) Single ingredient feeds shall have a product name in accordance with the designated definition of feed ingredients as recognized by the Association of American Feed Control Officials unless the Department designates otherwise;

(g) The word “vitamin”, or a contraction thereof, or any word suggesting vitamin can be used only in the name of a feed which is represented to be a vitamin supplement, and which is labeled with the minimum content of each vitamin declared, as specified in OAR 603-058-0130(4);

(h) The term “mineralized” salt shall not be used in the name of a feed except for “Trace Mineralized Salt”. When so used, the product must contain significant amounts of trace minerals, which are recognized as essential for animal nutrition;

(i) The term “meat” and “meat by-products” shall be qualified to designate the animal from which the meat and meat by-products is derived unless the meat and meat-byproducts are made from cattle, swine, sheep and goats.

(a) The word “medicated” shall appear directly following and below the product name in a type size, no smaller than one-half the type size of the product name;

(b) Purpose statement as required in OAR 603-058-0130(3);

(c) The purpose of medication (claim statement);

(d) An Active ingredient statement listing the active drug ingredients by their established name and the amounts in accordance with OAR 603-058-0130(5).

(3) Purpose Statement:

(a) The statement of purpose shall contain the specific species and animal class(s) for which the feed is intended as defined in OAR 603-058-0130(4);

(b) The manufacturer shall have flexibility in describing in more specific and common language the defined animal class, species and purpose while being consistent with the category of animal class defined in OAR 603-058-0130(4) which may include, but is not limited to weight range(s), sex, or ages of the animal(s) for which the feed is manufactured;

(c) The purpose statement may be excluded from the label if the product name includes a description of the species and animal class(s) for which the product is intended;

(d) The purpose statement of a premix for the manufacture of feed may exclude the animal class and species and state "For Further Manufacture of Feed" if the nutrients contained in the premix are guaranteed and sufficient for formulation into various animal species feeds and premix specifications are provided by the end user;

(e) The purpose statement of a single purpose ingredient blend, such as a blend of animal protein products, milk products, fat products, roughage products or molasses products may exclude the animal class and species and state "For Further Manufacture of Feed" if the label guarantees of the nutrients contained in the single purpose nutrient blend are sufficient to provide for formulation into various animal species feeds.
