Is glyphosate safe for rabbit feed?

Glyphosate is generally considered safe for use in animal feed when used according to approved guidelines and within regulatory limits. Regulatory agencies around the world, such as the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), have evaluated the safety of glyphosate and established maximum residue limits (MRLs) to ensure its safe use.

Glyphosate is primarily used as a herbicide, not as an ingredient in animal feed. However, there is a possibility of glyphosate residues being present in feed ingredients derived from crops that have been treated with glyphosate. Common feed ingredients such as grains, hay, and forage crops may have been exposed to glyphosate during their growth.

The MRLs set by regulatory agencies specify the maximum allowable concentration of glyphosate residues that can be present in animal feed without posing a significant risk to animal health. These limits are established based on extensive scientific research and risk assessments.

It's important to note that glyphosate is considered safe for most animals, including rabbits, when used according to approved guidelines and within regulatory limits. However, if you have specific concerns about glyphosate levels in your rabbit's feed, it's best to consult with the manufacturer of the feed or a veterinarian who can provide more specific information based on the region and the specific feed being used. They can also provide guidance on selecting high-quality and safe feed for your rabbits.
