Implanting boar pigs at 100 lb with 24 mg of Compudose 200Â® (estradiol 17Î²) had no significant effect on "boar odor" in meat, rate of gain, feed efficiency, carcass leanness or meat quality traits. The presence of a 7 to 8 mo old gilt in the pen decreased rate of growth in both control and implanted boars, but contrary to our expectations did not increase the incidence of â€œboar odor".; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 15, 1984
