In February, 1998, 191 crossbred steers (885 lb) were used in a 28-day feeding trial to evaluate the effects of florfenicol (Nuflor®) on morbidity of newly weaned, lightweight cattle.

No statistically significant differences in daily gain, feed intake, or feed efficiency were observed between treated and nontreated cattle.
