Two main types of commercial implants were studied for their effect on weight gain in cattle. RALGRO, when implanted twice (once at birth and once approximately 60 days later), provided the greatest amount of gain. COMPUDOSE proved to be the least effective, but it still provided enough gain over the control to be economically feasable. The cattle herd used contained different breeds and was selected to give a general cattleman's test.
