Anabolic implants that promote growth are widely used in cattle feeding. The implant Ralgro® is available to use in sheep at the 12-mg dose rate, but producer acceptance is limited. Questions about the efficacy of the implants and possible detrimental side effects may limit implant use. This experiment was conducted to evaluate production responses to Ralgro® implants in weaned feeder lambs.
