Other BRD treatments were 50% as effective as DRAXXIN®

Bottles

In several large pen studies,5 DRAXXIN eclipsed competitive products with:

  • 50% fewer re-treats6
  • 50% fewer dead or chronic animals6

Three separate meta-analysis articles have demonstrated that DRAXXIN may reduce BRD mortality (control) or BRD case fatality rate (treatment) by 50% compared to competitive antimicrobials.8,9,10

BRD CONTROL

In study after study, DRAXXIN® outperforms other antimicrobials, delivering better BRD control, superior cattle performance and more money in your pocket.

Greater first-time metaphylactic success

Cattle administered DRAXXIN on arrival were less likely to develop BRD than those given competitive antibiotics:

  • 23% better success than Zuprevo® (tildipirosin)2
  • 5.18% fewer BRD cases than Zactran® (gamithromycin)1
  • Up to a 22.4% better than Micotil® (tilmicosin)3
  • Up to a 21.8% better than Nuflor® (florfenicol)3
  • 15.8% better than oxytetracycline4

Better BRD control than Zuprevo1

Compared with feedlot calves receiving Zuprevo on arrival, those administered DRAXXIN demonstrated:

  • More than 76% reduction in deads and chronics1
  • 18.5% better feed:gain1
  • 30.9% increase in average daily gain1

Superior BRD control over Zactran2

Compared with feedlot calves receiving Zactran on arrival, those administered DRAXXIN demonstrated:

  • 7.9% less BRD morbidity2
  • 22.1% fewer BRD cases2
  • 60.3% fewer BRD deads2
  • 4.8% better daily gains and feed efficiency2
  • A $38.96 per-head advantage2
