SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed supplemental NADA 104-646 that provides for use of RUMENSIN® (20, 30, 45, 60, 80, or 90.7 grams per pound (g/lb) monensin activity as monensin sodium) and TYLAN® (10, 40, or 100 g/lb tylosin phosphate) Type A medicated articles to make combination drug Type C medicated feeds for cattle fed in confinement for slaughter. The Type C medicated feeds contain 10 to 30 g/ton monensin and 8 to 10 g/ton tylosin, and are used for improved feed efficiency, prevention and control of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria bovis and E. zuernii, and reduction of the incidence of liver abscesses caused by Fusobacterium necrophorum and Actinomyces (Corynebacterium) pyogenes. The supplemental NADA is approved as of February 2, 2001, and the regulations are amended in 21 CFR 558.355 to reflect the approval. The basis of approval is discussed in the freedom of information summary.

In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summary of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of this application may be seen in the Dockets Management Branch (HFA-305), Food and Drug Administration, 5630 Fishers Lane, rm. 1061, Rockville, MD 20852, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The agency has determined under 21 CFR 25.33(a)(2) that this action is of a type that does not individually or cumulatively have a significant effect on the human environment. Therefore, neither an environmental assessment nor an environmental impact statement is required.

This rule does not meet the definition of “rule” in 5 U.S.C. 804(3)(A) because it is a rule of “particular applicability.” Therefore, it is not subject to the congressional review requirements in 5 U.S.C. 801-808.
