To provide for a medicated free-choice administered feed.

II. INDICATIONS FOR USE

For increased rate of weight gain in pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker, feeder cattle, and dairy and beef replacement heifers).

III. DOSAGE FORM(S), ROUTE OF ADMINISTRATION AND RECOMMENDED DOSAGE

Medicated mineral feed containing 1440 grams per ton (720 mg./lb.) lasalocid to be fed free-choice to pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker, feeder cattle, and dairy and beef replacement heifers) at a rate of 0.084 lb. to 0.277 lb. per head per day.

Dose titration data was provided by authorized reference to NADA 96-298V (see FOI dated December 14, 1984, FR Vol. 49, No. 246, page 49449).

Three trials were conducted to determine the effect of lasalocid on average daily gain and mineral consumption when administered in a medicated mineral fed free-choice.

A. Study No. 4095

Investigator:

Dr. Denis Lamm
Eastern Colorado Research Center
Burdette Route
Akron, Colorado

The 92-day trial consisted of 2 pasture lots of 10 yearling steers. Two lots were fed the medicated mineral free-choice.

C. Study No. 3788

Investigator:

Dr. Albert Peter
Moorman Research Farm 2
Mendon, Illinois

The 84-day study consisted of 4 pasture lots of 8 steer calves each. Two lots were fed the medicated mineral free-choice and two lots were fed the unmedicated control mineral free-choice.

Summary:

The Analysis of Variance for Average Daily Gain pooled the ten replicates from studies #4249 and #3788 and analyzed the data without specific consideration for the heifers in study #4249. The site by treatment interaction was not significant (P>.3533) and this term was pooled into error. In this analysis, there was a site effect (P=.0002) but no treatment effect (P=.1216). However, a one-tailed t test used to test for treatment difference between treated and control animals was significant at P=.0608. This indicated that lasalocid was effective to increase the rate of weight gain in pasture cattle when received through consumption of Moorman's mineral mixture.

A coefficient of variation (C.V.) was calculated for the two effectiveness studies (#4249 and #3788) based upon consumption of lasalocid (mg/head/day). The model used contained terms for location, period, location by period, and error, as sources of variance. A C.V. of 43.722 was calculated based upon a mean of 146.8 mg and a calculated Mean Square Error (MSE) = 4119.57, where C.V. = ((sqare root of MSE)/Mean)) x 100. A C.V. was also calculated for study #4095 based upon consumption of lasalocid (mg/head/day). The model used contained terms for period and error as sources of variance. A C.V. of 9.4345 was calculated based upon a mean of 161.4 mg and a MSE of 231.917.

The average intake for studies #3788, #4095 and #4113 was within the efficacious range of 60 to 200 mg per head daily (21 CFR 558.311), and the C.V. calculated for the intake study (#4095) was 9.4345%, which is less than the C.V. of 43.722% calculated for the two studies (#3788 and #4113) in which effectiveness of lasalocid in free-choice mineral mixture was established. Since the variation in intake compares favorably with the effectiveness data the free-choice mineral mixture is effective when fed to pasture cattle.

V. ANIMAL SAFETY

Animal safety data was provided by authorized reference to NADA 96-298V (see FOI dated December 14, 1984, FR Vol. 49, No. 246, page 49449; July 28, 1982, FR Vol. 47, No. 152, page 34133; May 4, 1987, FR Vol. 52, No. 85; page 16239).

VI. HUMAN SAFETY

Human safety data was provided by authorized references to NADA 96-298V (see FOI dated December 14, 1984, FR Vol. 49, No. 246, page 49449; July 28, 1982, FR Vol. 47, No. 152, page 34133; and May 4, 1987, FR Vol. 52, No. 85, page 16239).

VII. AGENCY CONCLUSIONS:

For the Center for Veterinary Medicine's review, since this original new animal drug application relied on information in a previously approved new animal drug application (NADA 96-298), it was treated as if it were a supplemental new animal drug application. Therefore, under the CVM supplemental new animal drug application policy (December 23, 1977, 42 FR 64367), this is a Category II change providing for the use of lasalocid in Moorman's Cattle Minerals BT Medicated, as a free-choice and self-limiting supplemental feed in pasture cattle (slaughter, stocker, feeder cattle, and dairy and beef replacement heifers).

The new use provided by this application does not constitute an expanded use because this is only a change in the type of carrier for the drug. Therefore, a review of the underlying human food and target animal safety under NADA 96-298 is not required.

Moorman Manufacturing Company provided data demonstrating that lasalocid in Moorman's Cattle Mineral BT Medicated is effective, while Hoffmann La Roche supplied data demonstrating safety or the product. Therefore, this application is approved.
