Synovex® S Steer Growth and Finishing Implants

Expand All
  • Each implant of eight pellets contains oestradiol benzoate 20 mg, progesterone 200 mg.

  • Improved weight gain in steers older than 6 weeks of age.

    Oestradiol is thought to increase the amount of circulating growth hormone through its action on the hypothalamus and pituitary. It also increases amounts of circulating insulin and thyroxine, leading to an increase in protein synthesis, nitrogen retention, blood glucose and metabolic rate. The result is an increase in muscle tissue. Progesterone is thought to exert some indirect anabolic effect.

    Maximum growth rate requires good quality stock with adequate control of parasites and other diseases, and good quality feed through pasture, supplements or lot feeding. Growth response may vary widely for nutritional or other reasons. Improved performance may be noted only when conditions are favourable for good growth.

    Indications Promotion of weight gain in steers more than 6 weeks old; for use during the growing or finishing phase.
