A.S. Series 73-1
Less research has been conducted with lambs than with cattle where zeranol has been compared to a control group and to a DES-implanted group. With the removal of DES as an additive to the feed or as an implant, there is more interest in possible substitue products. While response of feedlot lambs to DES is of no practical concern at present, results from zeranol in comparison to DES give a more thorough evaluation of the product than studies with a comparison to only a control group. Two such experiments have been completed and are reported herein.
