Baytril 100 Offers Cattle Producers Options in Treating BRD

Baytril 100 Offers Cattle Producers Options in Treating BRD

This fall's volatile weather pattern has brought concern for Bovine Respiratory Disease. Bayer Healthcare released Baytril 100 for the control of BRD. Bayer Animal Health Division Manager Bruce Brinkmeyer said Baytril 100 can now be used on a broader set of cattle.

"Previously Baytril 100 was only reserved for animals that had been diagnosed with actually having Bovine Respiratory Disease and used only as a treatment option," Brinkmeyer said. "With the new claim, animals that in a high-risk category of getting BRD can now be mass-treated or proactively treated kind of a little ahead of the disease."

In using Baytil 100, cattle producers will still need to work with their veterinarian. Brinkmeyer said Baytril 100 is still a veterinarian prescription product.

"It's really the veterinarian that has to determine that your animals are in a high risk category and need to be treated on a control basis with using Baytril to help control BRD," Brinkmeyer said.

Like other BRD products, Baytril is administered as an injection. Brinkmeyer said Baytril works very quickly in the animal's system to kill the organisms that are causing the disease issues.

Radio Oklahoma Network's Leslie Smith interviewed Bruce Brinkmeyer at the National Association of Farm Broadcasting Convention earlier this month. Click on the LISTEN BAR below for the full interview.

In looking ahead to next spring, Bayer Animal Health has released a new fly control product called Rabon Oral Larvicide. This year Bayer has released the Rabon calculator App to help producers know how much of the product should put into the animal's feed. Brinkmeyer said that's the hardest and most confusing part of using the product. The Rabon Calculator uses basic inputs, such as animal weight, number of animals and feed batch size, to calculate correct amounts of Rabon Oral Larvicide for feed-through control of all four major fly species in cattle.

The free app is available for both Apple and Android smartphone and tablet PC use.   The app can be downloaded by searching "Rabon Calculator" on iTunes or Google Play. Click here for more details about the Rabon Calculator App.
