Zeranol stimulates the pituitary gland of the animal to produce increased amounts of somatotropin, the
animals own natural growth-promoting agent. Zeranol IS NOT an estrogen, which is found in other implants.
Independent studies (data on file) show high quality grade and high return on investment with zeranol
used as the initial implant. Because zeranol is not believed to directly affect the muscle tissue, zeranol has repeatedly demonstrated a minimal quality grade effect even though it improves average daily gain and feed efficiency.
Optimal absorption of Ralgro implants are dependent on proper placement of the implanted pellets, made
simple with the easy-to-use Ralogun® pellet injector.
The Ralogun is one of the most reliable implant devices in the industry. Its small needle diameter reduces
tissue trauma and increases the likelihood of proper placement, contributing to the effectiveness of the implant.
Ralgro Magnum implants brand provide the optimal dose of zeranol for high performance in feedyard steers.
Ralgro Magnum implants are available in a 10-dose strip, each dose consisting of six pellets containing a total of 72 mg of zeranol.
For Ralgro Magnum implants, use the Dur-A-Tract® delivery system. It combines the dependability
of the Ralogun with the safety of a retractable needle. Once the Dur-A-Tract needle is inserted, a trigger squeeze retracts the needle and deposits the implant pellets subcutaneously in a straight, smooth line.
The gun is non-cocking and requires only one pull to activate, so more steers can be implanted in less time.
The Dur-A-Tract system features the same small needle as the Ralogun and is packaged in a hard, plastic storage case.
