Terramycin good for CRD?

I read the description of Terramiycin over at Mcmurray and it says:
"This broad-spectrum antibiotic is a shot-gun approach to the problems that can occur during the growing period. Colds, chronic respiratory disease, air sac infection, fowl cholera, and other diseases"

I have heard from other sources that this antibiotic will not work for CRD.

Which is it? Any opinions would be great.

Thanks

I have always been told that Terramycin is not really strong enough for CRD..., although you could start with that. Tylan is better. Are you sure that's what your birds have, though?

No, it will not work, you need a respiratory antibiotic for CRD. Broad spectrum's wont work. You can see more about this HERE .

I don't have MG on my farm, which causes CRD, but I have had bronchitis and I have used LS 50 and it seems to work fairly well for respitory distress.

It is wise to treat every once in a while with a different type of antibiotic so resistance is built up.
