Chlortetracycline, Oxytetracycline, Tetracycline and Bacitracin Tissue Residue Studies in Swine Conducted in Reference to Foreign Export Markets
The objective of this study was to describe tissue residues of chlortetracycline, oxytetracycline, and tetracycline in slaughter hogs and also bacitracin in cull sows. For the tetracyclines, the...
