Effects of timing of chlortetracycline in combination with decoquinate on growth performance , health , and carcass characteristics of feeder steers

Steer calves (n = 1690) were used in a 220-day study to evaluate the effects of chlortetracycline (CTC) plus decoquinate (DEQ) on health and performance of feedlot cattle. Treatments were 1) control (CON); 2) CTC + decoquinate early (CTC+DEQ Early), and 3) CTC + decoquinate delayed (CTC+DEQ Delayed). Ten mg of CTC/lb (22 mg/kg) body weight (BW) was fed… CONTINUE READING
