I have read the journal’s policy and have the following conflicts: GHL has accepted consulting fees for service on scientific advisory boards for Elanco Animal Health, and Intervet/Schering Plough (now known as Merck Animal Health) an dZoetis. In addition, GHL has received honoraria and paid travel expenses from Elanco Animal Health and Zoetis, and has served as a co-author with, and graduate advisor of, Elanco Animal Health personnel. DUT reports that Elanco Animal Health provided funds in support of the Beef Cattle Institute at Kansas State University of which DUT is the director. HMS reports no conflicts of interest related to either drug sponsor. The authors have no other competing interests such as employment, patents, products in development or marketed products. This does not alter our adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
Conceived and designed the experiments: GHL. Analyzed the data: GHL HMS. Wrote the paper: GHL DUT HMS.
