Abstract

Anabolic implants reduce the cost of production in all phases of beef production from suckling calves to finishing. There are many types of implants available with varying dosages and payout mechanisms. The value of different implants and implant strategies have been well documented in the literature, allowing for economic models to be easily generated based on biological outcomes. These data can aid in designing the optimal strategy for each phase of beef production across operational logistics.
