The beneficial effects of anabolic implants with respect to feedlot performance and carcass weight are nearly unequivocal. Although individual prospective studies may have concluded that there are no significant differences between implant dosages, modern production economics demand that any differences, however small, must be gleaned if they are real. The objective of this study was to conduct a meta-analysis of existing data from peer-reviewed as well as industry sources to compare the effects of different doses of anabolic implants on feedlot performance and carcass traits of steers.
