I just purchased some 700# Holstein steers and some were implanted and some were not should I do the ones who already are or save my money. I have no idea when and what implants were used. Thanks.

Depending on the days on feed you can use several low dose estrogens (Synovex C) and probably get minimal estrogen stacking and then come back with your terminal implant 90 -110 days before slaughter.
