This document discusses the importance of connecting pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetics in considerations when developing feeder and stocker cattle antibiotic treatment protocols. Simple illustrations of the use of the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic link for commonly used FDA-approved antibiotics are explored. Additionally, important residue avoidance points to consider are discussed when using medication in feeder and stocker cattle with special emphasis on extra label drug use is employed.
