Effectiveness Of Albendazole Against Parasites And Cow And Calf Performance, H.L. Miller, J. Berthelsen, B.A. Petitjean, R.H. Haigh

South Dakota Beef Report, 1986

Albendazole was utilized in drench and feed additive form to determine its effectiveness against parasite control, cow weight and conception rate and calf weaning weights. Fecal oocyte number was decreased by administration of Albendazole. Calf weaning weights from treated cows were heavier the first two years (14.5 lb for heifers and 10.5 lb for bulls) but decreased the third year (13 lb and 6 lb for heifers and bulls, respectively). Conception rates were similar between the two groups, with the only difference occurring the third year when control cows had a higher conception rate from the second AI ...


Determination Of An Optimal Single Dose Of Famphur Administered Om Combination With Levamisole In A Paste Formulation For Grub Control In Beef Calves, H.L. Miller, R.L. Delay, R. Haigh Jan 1986

Determination Of An Optimal Single Dose Of Famphur Administered Om Combination With Levamisole In A Paste Formulation For Grub Control In Beef Calves, H.L. Miller, R.L. Delay, R. Haigh

South Dakota Beef Report, 1986

Eighty-nine bull and heifer crossbred beef calves were utilized in five treatments t o determine the effect of famphur administered as a paste for grub control. The five treatments were (1) experimental paste-0% famphur or control (A), (2) experimental paste-14.4% famphur (B), (3) experimental paste-21.6X famphur (C), (4) experimental paste-28.8% famphur (Dl and (5) Warbex famphur pour-on plus tramisol levamisole gel (El. In all treatments in which famphur was administered (B, C, D and E) effective control of grubs was accomplished. Weight gains were 355, 360, 384, 355 and 356 lb for bulls in groups A, B ...
