Antibiotic supplementation for feedlot cattle is a common practice as a means of decreasing diesease problems, improving feedlot performance and reducing the incidence of abscessed livers in cattle fed high-concentrate diets. Use of monensin in rations for feedlot cattle has rather consistently improved feed utilization. The use of monensin in combination with an antibiotic has not been extensively studied.
