Feed additives can effectively improve production levels, efficiency, and animal health. Feed additives are appropriate not only in cattle finishing operations, but also in cow-calf and stocker grazing operations. The primary effects of feed additives are increased feed efficiency and/ or improved average daily gain. Some feed additives also reduce incidence of bloat, acidosis, or coccidiosis. Other feed additives suppress estrus, reduce liver abscesses, control foot rot problems, and control parasites.
