A.S. Series 71-23
This experiment is one of a series to study effects of castration, growth stimulating compounds and various feeding and management systems on performance and carcass characteristics of feedlot male and female cattle. It involved a comparison of bulls with steers and their response to diethylstilbestrol or zeranol (a resorcyclic acid lactone compound shown to have growth stimulating properties) implants when fed high-concentrate diets.
