Estradiol Implant

Encore (estradiol) implants from Elanco are indicated for increased rate of weight gain in suckling and pastured growing steers. Use for improved feed efficiency and increased rate of weight gain in confined steers and heifers. An Encore Controlled Release Implant will provide an effective daily dose of estradiol for at least 400 days. No additional effectiveness may be expected from reimplanting in less than 400 days. Do not use in veal calves or in animals intended for breeding purposes.

Each Encore (estradiol) silicone rubber implant contains 43.9 mg estradiol and is coated with not less than 0.5 mg of oxytetracycline powder as a local antibacterial. A Compudose/Encore implanter must be used to implant cattle.
