Species Grams bacitracin
per ton of feed
Indications for Use
Growing/finishing swine 10 - 30 For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency.
   
250 For control of swine dysentery (bloody scours) associated with Treponema hyodysenteriae in pigs up to 250 lbs body weight. Feed 250 grams per ton of complete feed on premises with a history of swine dysentery, but where signs of the disease have not yet occurred or following an approved treatment of the disease condition.
   
The 250 g/ton level will provide 5 to 7 mg/lb in swine weighing 40 to 250 lbs.
   
CAUTION: Diagnosis should be confirmed by a veterinarian when results are not satisfactory. Feed containing an approved level of bacitracin methylene disalicylate should be the sole ration.
Pregnant sows 250 For control of clostridial enteritis caused by C. perfringens in suckling piglets when fed to sows from 14 days before through 21 days after farrowing on premises with a history of clostridial scours.
   
CAUTION: Diagnosis should be confirmed by a veterinarian when results are not satisfactory. Feed containing an approved level of bacitracin methylene disalicylate should be the sole ration.
Broiler and replacement chickens 4 - 50 For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency.
   
50 As an aid in prevention of necrotic enteritis caused or complicated by Clostridium spp. or other organisms susceptible to bacitracin methylene disalicylate.
   
100 - 200 As an aid in control of necrotic enteritis caused or complicated by Clostridium spp. or other organisms susceptible to bacitracin methylene disalicylate.
   
CAUTION: To control a necrotic enteritis outbreak, start medication at the first clinical signs of disease. The dosage range permitted provides for different levels based on severity of the infection. Consult a poultry diagnostic laboratory or pathologist to determine the diagnosis and advice regarding the optimal level of drug. Administer continuously for 5 - 7 days or as long as clinical signs persist, and then reduce medication to prevention level (50 g/ton).
Laying hens 10 - 25 For increased egg production and improved feed efficiency during the first seven months of production.
Growing turkeys 4 - 50 For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency.
   
200 As an aid in control of transmissible enteritis in growing turkeys complicated by organisms susceptible to bacitracin methylene disalicylate.
Pheasants 4 - 50 For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency.
Quail 5 - 20 For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in quail not over 5 weeks of age.
   
200 For prevention of ulcerative enteritis in growing quail due to Clostridium colinum susceptible to bacitracin methylene disalicylate. Feed continuously as the sole ration.
Feedlot beef cattle mg/head/day
70
(continuously)
For reduction in the number of liver condemnations due to abscesses in feedlot beef cattle.
250
(5 days in 30)
For reduction in the number of liver condemnations due to abscesses in feedlot beef cattle.
