This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
Food and Drug Administration, HHS.

Elanco Animal Health, A Division of Eli Lilly & Co., Lilly Corporate Center, Indianapolis, IN 46285, filed a supplement to NADA 141-225 that provides for use of OPTAFLEXX (ractopamine hydrochloride) and RUMENSIN (monensin, USP) Type A medicated articles to formulate two-way combination drug Type C medicated feeds for cattle fed in confinement for slaughter. Elanco Animal Health also filed a supplement to NADA 141-224 that provides for use of OPTAFLEXX (ractopamine hydrochloride), RUMENSIN (monensin, USP), and TYLAN (tylosin phosphate) Type A medicated articles to formulate three-way combination drug Type C medicated feeds for cattle fed in confinement for slaughter.
The supplemental NADAs provide for administering ractopamine hydrochloride Type C medicated feeds as a top dress on Type C medicated feeds containing monensin, USP, or monensin, USP, and tylosin phosphate to cattle fed in confinement for slaughter as the means by which the two-way or three-way combinations will be created. Supplemental NADA 141-224 is approved as of June 7, 2010; supplemental NADA 141-225 is approved as of June 17, 2010; and the regulations in 21 CFR 558.500 are amended to reflect the approvals.
In accordance with the freedom of information provisions of 21 CFR part 20 and 21 CFR 514.11(e)(2)(ii), a summaries of safety and effectiveness data and information submitted to support approval of these applications may be seen in the Division of Dockets Management (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 that these actions are of a type that do 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.Start List of Subjects
