About the Product

Why Use CTC Crumbles?
CTC (chlortetracycline) is a broad spectrum antibiotic with a variety of feeding levels for use in beef cattle, non-lactating dairy cattle, and sheep. When fed as directed, CTC Crumbles will improve daily gain and feed efficiency; reduce liver condemnations due to abscesses; control bacterial pneumonia associated with shipping fever complex caused by Pasteurella spp.; and treat bacterial enteritis caused by Escherichia coli and bacterial pneumonia caused by Pasteurella multicida organisms.

In sheep CTC will increase the rate of weight gain and improve feed efficiency, and reduce the incidence of (vibrionic) abortion caused by Campylobacter fetus infection.

When To Use CTC Crumbles
Feed CTC Crumbles at the level recommended to obtain the desired performance and to aid in the prevention and reduction of various disease problems.
