The effects of enrofloxacin on bull reproductive performance
have not been adequately determined.
Subcutaneous injection in cattle can cause a transient local tissue
reaction that may result in trim loss of edible tissue at slaughter.
Baytril® 100 and Baytril® 100-CA1 contain different excipients
than other Baytril® products. The safety and efficacy of this
formulation in species other than cattle has not been determined.
Quinolone-class drugs should be used with caution in animals
with known or suspected Central Nervous System (CNS)
disorders. In such animals, quinolones have, in rare instances,
been associated with CNS stimulation which may lead to
convulsive seizures. Quinolone-class drugs have been shown to
produce erosions of cartilage of weight-bearing joints and other
signs of arthropathy in immature animals of various species. See
Animal Safety section for additional information.
No adverse reactions were observed during Baytril® 100
In feeder calves, clinical signs including depression,
incoordination, muscle fasciculation and inappetance have been
observed at higher than approves dosages.
An injection site study conducted in feeder calves demonstrated
that the formulation may induce a transient reaction in the
subcutaneous tissue and underlying muscle. No painful
responses to administration were observed.
In two reproductive safety studies, enrofloxacin treatment
had no adverse effect on reproduction or cow health in either
study. Three calves in the first trimester study that were born to
enrofloxacin-treated cows died due to perforating gastrointestinal
ulcers. No congenital anomalies were observed in either study,
and calf body weights and general health were otherwise normal.

1. Entice MR-LEs onto bus with talk of creating a unique competitive outlet for fi nished cattle.
Deliver to construction site.
2. On site, in several windrows 12 feet apart, feed out load of venture capital $$$.
3. Gradually introduce engineers allowing them limited access to $$$ until blueprints for a
1,000 head/week facility gel.
4. Show plans to Commercial Developers; simmer for one week before lifting lid for quote.
5. Discard unreasonable quotes. When chosen quote is bubbly and smells yummy, add bulk of
the $$$, turn heat to Medium and replace lid. Allow site to develop slowly per quote.
6. After 90 days, remove from heat, baste with more $$$, invite Inspectors to review and, if site
is approved, sprinkle in three shifts of highly-trained processing personnel, add cattle, and
process to beef product. Label as desired.
7. Using support personnel (truckers, producers, marketing team) serve chilled beef as sides,
quarters, chub, cuts or other presentation to distribution partners. Follo w through to meat
case or restaurant.
8. Repeat often, as needed, in rural communities nationwide that have plenty of fi nished
and consumers who want to connect with *delicious, fresh, safe, wholesome, traceable home-grown beef.
*Serves millions. Environmentally sustainable.
(ABOVE) Maybe we
ought to be thinking
about selling chilled
beef instead of live
fi nished cattle. Your
shall we say ‘enthusiasm’.
• The appeal of a person, to me, is
measured by how much positive
energy they drag to the fi re. The rest
I can work around.
• Sometimes, with a particular challenge
in life, it’s best to pop your
dallies, coil back up and rethink it.
• I listen to Tigger sometimes. He
seems to make sense on a good day.
• My ol’ truck is paid off, and that’s a
big deal for me. Kind of a statement.
• Those dang kids keep watching
everything we do, so we better not
If I missed anything, no worries,
there’s always the next issue. All I really
care about today is doing my part to
work through this mess of a rodear
in front of us, and getting these cows
and their kids back out on grass. We’ll
have a sizable cull bunch, for sure, and
a cut of critters we’re going to give
another chance, but we’ll run them
somewhere else for the summer. The
rest are fi ne for now. We’ll keep a eye
on them, and our neighbors and our
family, like we always do, and one day
those fresh-faced kids that were analyzing
our every move will be driving us
all around the ranch, brimming with
ideas and pure love, the same love
we’ve always had for ranching, our
Blessings and our amazing future.
In a few years I’ll set ‘n rock on
the front porch and see how they’re
progressing. If I truly did the right
thing today, I’ll be proud.
