WELCOME TO FARAD
FARAD is a congressionally-mandated risk-management program that is supported by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). In view of limited resources, FARAD's focus is limited to food animal species exclusively. The program is maintained by a consortium of universities, including University of California- Davis (UCD), University of Florida (UF), Kansas State University (KSU) and North Carolina State University (NCSU). FARAD's primary mission is to prevent or mitigate illegal or harmful residues of drugs, pesticides, biotoxins and other chemical agents that may contaminate foods of animal origin.
