Cattlemen's Day, 1999; Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station contribution; no. 99-339-S; Report of progress (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service); 831; Beef; Steers; Finishing; Revalor-S; Synovex plus
One hundred four Hereford x Angus steers averaging 897 lb were implanted with Revalor®- S or Synovex® Plus™ and fed a high concentrate diet for 82 days. Feed efficiencies and daily gains were not different between the two implant groups. Although most carcass characteristics were similar, Revalor-S tended (P<.09) to yield a higher percentage of carcasses that graded USDA Choice or better.
