Registering feed products
Registering feed products and licensing facilities
Oregon law requires that:
  • all commercial animal feeds must be registered with the department annually.
  • the facility manufacturing, wholesaling, or registering the commercial animal feed must be licensed with the department annually. (ORS 633.006)
Licenses and registrations are for the calendar year (January 1 through December 31). Fees are not prorated.
A commercial feed is a formula sold to two or more end-users. It must be registered and labeled as a commercial feed.
A custom feed is a formula that only one end-user gets. Custom feeds are exempt from product registration. However, the feed mill producing custom-formula feeds must be licensed with the department each year. (See Facility Licensing below)

  1. If you only wholesale products made and labeled by others, the annual facility license is $100.00.
  2. If you are a manufacturer or contract feeder, or if you are registering a product for a manufacturer, the fee is based on tons of product made, sold, or used in Oregon.
