Abstract

The impact of treatment with ivermectin versus a topical organophosphate on growth rate and feed efficiency was studied in 9527 calves entering a feedlot in western Canada at an average 275 kg liveweight. Ivermectin-treated animals (200 µg/kg bodyweight s.c.) gained an average 0.08 kg per day more...

Abstract

A trial involving 6169 feedlot calves was conducted under commercial feedlot conditions in western Canada to compare the relative efficacy of treatment with a combination of oxfendazole and fenthion (O/F) versus ivermectin (I) with respect to the outcome variables, final weight, gain, days on feed...

Abstract

Production and economic benefits were gained by giving a single treatment of Ivomec (ivermectin, at 200 µg/kg, subcutaneously) or a combination of Tramisol (levamisole, at 6 mg/kg, subcutaneously) and Spotton (fenthion, at 3-4 mg/kg, topical) to feedlot steers in Alberta at the beginning of the...
