Treatments

You have a lot to gain from healthier cattle — and so do they. With in-feed antimicrobial treatment of the leading threats to cattle health, you can help keep your herd and your operation productive.

Demonstrated effectiveness: Our proof is your gain.

Studies evaluating the effectiveness of in-feed antimicrobials for cattle from Zoetis show how much you can gain with the right treatment.1,2

AUREOMYCIN® (chlortetracycline) is an important tool in the first 30 days of arrival at the feedyard.1

A large pen Holstein calf study compared four control and treatment programs during the arrival phase at the feedyard. Prior experience with the cattle used in the study suggested disease challenge was likely upon arrival and during the first 30 days on feed.1

The four treatments were:

  • DRAXXIN® (tulathromycin) Injectable Solution on arrival, followed by three five-day pulses of AUREOMYCIN® as recommended by the attending veterinarian (days 6-10, 12-16, and 18-22)
  • DRAXXIN on arrival with a therapeutic level of TERRAMYCIN® as recommended by the attending veterinarian from Day 10 to Day 23
  • DRAXXIN only on arrival
  • Three 5-day AUREOMYCIN pulses as recommended by the attending veterinarian (days 6-10, 12-16, and 18-22)

RESULTS: BRD first pulls and total morbidity is significantly (P < 0.10) lower for the group receiving DRAXXIN followed by pulses of AUREOMYCIN compared to the other three treatment groups. This group also had the greatest dry matter intake and average daily gain.1

New study shows benefit of AUREO S 700® in reducing pulls.2

In a feedlot study recently completed in the Texas Panhandle, nearly 1,500 head of cattle weighing an average of 499 pounds received one of three treatments:2

  • AUREO S 700 for 28 days, followed by BOVATEC® for 28 days
  • BOVATEC only for 56 days
  • Rumensin® only for 56 days

RESULTS: Cattle receiving AUREO S 700 followed by BOVATEC had a 13.8% relative reduction in first pulls and a 16% relative reduction in total BRD pulls, compared with BOVATEC only and Rumensin only.2
