SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed a supplement to NADA 104-646 that provides for use of RUMENSIN (monensin USP) and TYLAN (tylosin phosphate) Type A medicated articles to make dry and liquid two-way combination medicated feeds for cattle fed in confinement for slaughter. The supplemental NADA provides for an increased level of monensin in combination Type B and Type C medicated feeds and a revision to bacterial pathogen nomenclature. The supplemental NADA is approved as of October 30, 2007, and the regulations in 21 CFR 558.355 are amended to reflect the approval.Start Printed Page 68479
