Studies were conducted to evaluate the effects of delayed implanting or the use of a low-dose implant followed by a higher-dose implant in feedlot cattle. In the first study, 150 steers were allotted to 15 pens (three pens/treatment) and assigned to a nonimplant treatment (control), a single zeranol (36 mg) implant (R), or a double zeranol implant (DR) administered at the start of a 140-d finishing period, or a single zeranol implant administered at the start of an 80-d growing period, followed… CONTINUE READING
