One of the tricks that I use when purchasing Long Rang (or any expensive meds), is to contact some of the large animal vets in the area to see if they have any that is getting close to the expiration date. Have done this a few times and now some of the vets call us to see if we need anything when they are faced with this situation. The good thing about Long Range is that the expiration date is the "Sell-By" date and doesn't have anything to do with it's effectiveness in the cows. This works great when you are planning to work cattle because most of the dates will be expired within 30 days or so. Typically you can save around 30-50% off retail.
