Nilevar (l7 ethyl-19-nortestosterone) has been used to promote weight gains in underweight human subjects. Recent experiments at this station also showed that this synthetic male hormone-like compound significantly increased growth of female rats, but did not increase the growth of uncastrated male rats. The objective of this experiment was to determine if any economical benefits could be realized by including the hormone in a swine ration.
