Objective
In the face of losing this vital tool in beef production, tremendous focus has been placed on identifying an  alternative solution that does not sacrifice animal health or productivity. However, in order to competently identify an  alternative, a more comprehensive understanding of the microbiological variables influencing liver abscess rates should  be established. Therefore, the objective of this study was to utilize newly developed technologies to provide a more  comprehensive perspective on the microbiological differences of cattle supplemented with Tylosin versus those fed diets  without Tylosin supplementation. With this understanding, it was hypothesized that more targeted and effective Tylosin‐ alternatives can be developed and implemented in commercial beef production.
