Abstract

Hormonal implants in beef cattle have been studied for decades and proven to be an effective tool to improve performance efficiency. However, the beef industry has made significant improvement in the genetic base of cattle with more cattle capable of grading premium Choice and Prime. Minimal research has evaluated the impacts of nutritional and implant management on cattle bred for superior carcass quality. The objective was to assess the effects of dietary energy and implant potency to determine optimum strategies for managing feed conversion and marbling.
