One pull of the trigger in the ear. That puts in 3 or 4 tiny pellets. It makes the calves do better if they have something to eat. Its not a magic bullet that automatically adds 20 lbs. it will give them a boost if they are healthy and gaining weight. There is not an easy way to test to see if it works. Kind of a leap of faith but the the guys that do have a way of doing a controlled test say its the best bang for the buck and will add an additional 10 to 25 lbs to the calf weight all things being equal.
