Is Bovatec labeled for feeding to beef cows prior to and after calving?

After calling a livestock supply vendor and two Pfizer reps I have an answer. Pfizer is the company that makes the Bovatec product. They said that it is not labeled to feed to cattle less than 24 months of age—so not to pregnant cows or lactating cows. Bovatec should be fed only to feeder or grower beef animals. Thanks, and if you need any more information or would like the contact information for the Nebraska Pfizer representative, let me know.
