Seems kinda backwards. We use an Encore at 500 lbs, so if all else fails they're covered through finish. Encore is labeled as 400 day but our Encore rep said as hot as we're feeding these holsteins you can expect only about 300 day effectiveness. After that we go a couple ways. We will either use a Component TE-IS at 1000lbs with good results. Or, we're on our 2nd group trying Synovex One Feedlot around 700-800 lbs which is a 200 day. Honestly I think the Synovex cattle look like they're shaping up better, but we haven't taken them all the way to finish yet. I'm just hoping they don't fizzle out at the end. We've kinda bounced between the component & synovex as a sort of timing strategy to avoid trying to work cattle during busy time (planting & harvest). Any implant is better than none.
