Two trials were conducted to evaluate effects of Synovex C implants on replacement heifers, given at two different ages. Crossbred heifer calves (n = 370) were allotted to four treatments: 1) nonimplanted controls, 2) implanted at 2 mo, 3) implanted at 6 mo, and 4) implanted at both 2 and 6 mo of age. Heifers implanted at 2 mo gained 7 kg more (P = .01) by 6 mo than those not implanted at 2 mo. No differences were found in 22-mo weights. All implanted heifers had larger (P = .01) yearling… Expand
