BENEFITS OF EXCEDE INCLUDE:
In addition, EXCEDE is a proven therapy for bovine respiratory disease (BRD) and bovine foot rot.

When you use EXCEDE according to the label, you don’t have to worry about violative ceftiofur residues in milk or meat.
KEEP YOUR CATTLE HEALTHY
Sickness in cattle can be costly. Left untreated, economic losses can include labor and treatment costs, milk discard, decreased weight gain and death loss.
One instance of metritis can cost a producer more than $350 — and the costs keep adding up: from decreased milk production and discarded milk to increased veterinary treatments, reduced fertility and prolonged days open to additional culling.3
In the U.S. dairy industry, respiratory disease is the leading cause of illness and death in weaned calves.5 Morbidity due to BRD affects survivability while reducing dairy performance later in life.
COMMON ANTIBIOTICS USED FOR TREATMENT OF DAIRY CATTLE
