All livestock owners must take note that it is illegal to advertise, recommend, advise or sell any product intended to cure, treat, prevent or diagnose any animal disease unless the product has been thoroughly tested and registered for specific use in terms of Act 36 of 1947.
This Act is there to protect farmers against bogus claims and products. All registered products must display a “G number” indicating that it is registered and thus effective and safe to use in livestock.
