7 steps to help you make the most from an implant program.
By Gary Sides, managing nutritionist, Beef Strategic Technical Services, Zoetis While it’s a challenging time in the cattle industry, as a progressive cattle producer you still have opportunities to add value to your final product. Using growth implants is one of the most profitable tools available to help you achieve this goal — returning far more in weight gain and feed efficiency than the cost of the implant itself.1 There’s a common misconception that implants only benefit cattle in a stocker or feedlot setting. But the truth is, any cattle producer who wants to improve weight gain can benefit from SYNOVEX® implants — cow/calf producers included.
In fact, studies demonstrate that calves implanted with SYNOVEX C gained an average of 19 pounds more than nonimplanted calves at weaning2 — at $1.77 per pound for weaned calves, that’s an extra $33 per head at sale time and a 30-to-1 return on investment.*
So, whether you’re reading this from a cow/calf, stocker or feedlot perspective, make sure you’re not forfeiting gain and profit.
To optimize implant results and profit for every dollar invested in your implanting program, work with your processing crew to implement best-practice implanting techniques.
Here are seven steps to help you make the most from an implant program:
Implanting aligns well with key cattle preconditioning processes, such as immunizing and deworming, and will likely not require an extra trip through the chute (and even if so, the performance response more than outweighs the extra processing expense). Long-duration implant options, like SYNOVEX ONE, allow cattlemen to increase operational flexibility and decrease labor costs by extending the window for weight gain up to 200 days.
For additional resources and information, I encourage you to please contact your Zoetis representative or visit GrowWithSYNOVEX.com.
Do not use SYNOVEX products in veal calves. Refer to label for complete directions for use, precautions, and warnings.
