Maker Bee Dee Products

Maker Details Bee Dee was a subsidiary of the Chattanooga Medicine Company, which began in a two-story building on Market Street in Chattanooga, TN, in 1879. In the early 1900s, the Bee Dee Stock Medicine Company began manufacturing a variety of medications for farm animals. Bee Dees top product was "The Old Reliable Black-Draught for Stock and Poultry." Bee Dee appears to have gone out of business in the early 1950s.
