Which implant?

Postby Midtenn » Mon Sep 17, 2018 7:37 pm

I'm only familiar with ralgro , so now that its not available, could anyone recommend another brand that gives good results? I would like to use the same product on steers and heifers (feeders). I usually give ralgro at 2-3 months of age, I don't know if all brands are the same. Thanks.

Since when is Ralgro not available? I bought 50 doses in May. Hope I can get more .

Valley vet sells Ralgro. We use it some and I just checked. The gun/needles and the implant wheel all still available.

Are they both pellets and do the guns work the same as ralgro guns?

They all have a different gun. I use Revalor G but it is off label if you use it on suckling calves. Almost impossible to know if one is better than the other. I believe Synovex is approved for suckling calves, not sure about Compudose

I couldn't get Ralgro from anyone in late May. Used Revalor G on 4/5 weight stocker steers and I have liked my results. Revalor guy hoped the loss of Ralgro would boost his business enough, he was giving out their guns at the feed store one day. That was nice at least!
