The effects of zeranol were studied in 24 steers and 24 bulls starting at an average weight of 200 kg for a trial period of 183 days. Bulls grew faster than steers (P = 0.07) and zeranol-treated cattle showed higher average daily gain than controls (P < 0.05); there was no significant interaction...
Thirty-two cull cows aged from 1 to 13 yr were allocated to five age groups and fed individually for 82 days, then slaughtered. Half of the cows within each group were implanted with 36 mg of zeranol. Zeranol had no significant effect on average daily gain, feed efficiency or backfat thickness,...
Data on 99 young bulls, which were the progeny of matings of either double muscle bulls and normal cows (DMx) or normal bulls and normal cows (N) born over three calving seasons, were analyzed to compare the carcass characteristics and lean yield of yearling DMx and N bulls. DMx carcasses had...
