Currently at the Clayton Livestock Research Center we have 2 studies being conducted comparing Draxxin (Pfizer), Zactran (Merial) and Micotil flex dose (Elanco) in high stress receiving cattle (4wt central TX, heifers). 120 head were processed and immediately placed on wheat pasture, the next 600 head were allotted to treatment groups (20 hd/pen, 10 pens/treatment) and placed into the feedyard.

Mobility, morality and performance will be evaluated at 56 days post processing. This study is being done in cooperation with Kansas State University
