New Cross Clearance Offers Flexibility in Starting Cattle Rations

Producers can now feed AUREO S 700® with BOVATEC®


PARSIPPANY, N.J., September 14, 2020 — Starting cattle on feed has its challenges. With a

recent approval from the Food and Drug Administration, cattle producers now have the flexibility

to add AUREO S 700® into starter and growing rations that contain BOVATEC®.


“Cattle producers will see improved gain and feed efficiency, as well as coccidiosis control by

including BOVATEC as the ionophore,” said Gary Sides, PhD, cattle nutritionist, Beef Strategic

Technical Services, Zoetis. “And by adding AUREO S 700, they have the health benefit of

maintaining weight gain in the presence of respiratory disease.” 


Dr. Sides adds that it is important for companies to keep up with the needs of cattle producers in

the field and committed to offering additional on-label solutions. He added this cross clearance

allows cattle producers the flexibility to use these products together to raise healthy cattle that

contribute to safe, sustainable food for consumers who enjoy eating beef.

consult with your veterinarian or nutritionist.


Withdraw AUREO S 700 seven (7) days prior to slaughter. Do not use in calves to be processed

for veal.

Caution: Federal law restricts medicated feed containing this veterinary feed directive (VFD)

drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.


Do not use BOVATEC in calves to be processed for veal. Do not allow horses or other equines

access to feeds containing lasalocid, as ingestion may be fatal. Feeding undiluted or mixing

errors resulting in excessive concentrations of lasalocid could be fatal to cattle and sheep.
