The use of implants is fairly common, but its value is controversial. Some implants cause the ribeye to grow larger than normal for the steer/heifer and as a result unable to marble properly.<p>Implants are placed either in the fat at the base of the ear or in the cartilage of the ear with a hollow needle.<p>I really think the value of implants varies in type of cattle and management of them. I don't use any implants in any stock for breeding.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada

I have eaten cattle that were implanted as calves. So it would have been at least a year between implant and slaughter.<p>I don't implant any cattle anymore as I have so few that are not considered for breeding stock. I always use at least a 4 to 6 month period before eating an animal with any implants or even any medication.<p>I'm not sure there is any real proof about the supposed dangers of implants, or their real economic value.<p>Jason Trowbridge<br>Southern Angus Farms<br>Alberta Canada<br>
