Abstract

Data from three feeding trials conducted in commercial feedlots designed to evaluate implant programs for finished heifers have been summarized. Implanting with Synovex Plus and feeding MGA improved ADG by 4.4% compared to implanting with Finaplix-H and feeding MGA resulting in 10 lb heavier carcasses. Heifers that were implanted with Synovex Plus had increased DMI compared to those implanted with Finaplix-H. Percentage of heifers grading Choice or above was lower for those heifers implanted with Synovex Plus compared to Finaplix-H, though marbling score only tended to be lowered for those heifers implanted with Synovex Plus compared to implanting with Finaplix-H.
