Home / NEWS & MEDIA / Implant profit: Routine checks and proper administration matter
Improper implant administration can mean lost pounds and dollars
It’s nearly impossible to get the most out of an implant if it isn’t administered correctly. When factoring in labor costs and lost gain potential, feedlots can say goodbye to approximately $100 per head1* for every incorrectly administered implant. That’s why it’s important to conduct routine implant checks and subsequent trainings. Remember: Employees may know the purchase price of an implant, but they may not know that incorrect administration could equal up to an $11 loss per head with a 10% error rate, which when multiplied can add up to a $10,000 loss per 1,000 head on feed.1
Implant checks can be conducted 30 to 60 days after administration. If a random check isn’t feasible, it can be done when cattle are reworked. Either way, the opportunity to assess performance and learn from previous administration techniques that worked — or didn’t work — is valuable.
When doing an implant check, feel the implant site and evaluate:
Inattention to detail and moving too quickly often influence the quality of implant administration. If issues occur, small adjustments in technique and environment can provide a drastic improvement. That will optimize implant success, which means more dollars.
A few implant administration reminders:
Additionally, Zoetis sales representatives can be a resource for conducting implant checks and trainings through the Implant Quality (IQ) program. From setting goals to developing a quality assurance program, training on proper techniques and monitoring results, the Zoetis Field Force supports producers to help get the most out of their implant investment.
“We’re here to help producers get each implant administered correctly so they can realize more gain,” said Dr. Douglas Hilbig, Beef Technical Services veterinarian with Zoetis. “Conducting implant checks often provides a learning opportunity for employees and can help protect the investment and profit potential implants provide.”
In addition to the IQ program, Zoetis offers SYNOVEX ONE GRASS and SYNOVEX ONE FEEDLOT, which provide up to 200 days of uninterrupted performance. This extended duration helps reduce the risk of losses due to abscesses and ruptures by eliminating the need to re-implant.
