  • 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
