Most cattle suffering from bovine respiratory disease (BRD) have been ill for several days before they are detected. Lungs may already have been damaged. Irreversible damage may be minimized by simultaneous control of the bacterial infection and local inflammation that can cause permanent performance losses, as illustrated in a study of 2,036 feedlot calves. These calves were weighed at processing (five days after arrival), day 35, and at harvest, after a mean of 137 days on feed.
