The DØ experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron has measured the inclusive single muon and dimuon cross sections for |ημ| < 0.8 in pp collisions at √s = 1.8 TeV. The b-quark cross section is extracted using these measurements and found to be in good agreement with next-to-leading order QCD predictions. The inclusive J/ψ cross section in the central region has also been measured and sources of J/ψ production are discussed. Prospects for further B-physics from the DØ experiment are given.
