Loading the Implanter
Load the implanter following the instructions supplied with each implanter.
Restrain the Animal
Speed of implantation as well as safety of handlers is
best achieved by restraining animal in a squeeze chute using head
restraint. When implanting horned cattle, better control is obtained
with additional use of nose tongs.
Prepare the Implant Site
Scrub the back side of the ear (implant site) with a
piece of clean absorbent cotton which has been soaked with topical
germicidal solution. Follow manufacturer's directions on germicide for
correct strength and preparation of solution. Avoid getting disinfectant
in animal's eyes.
Where to Implant
The full contents of one cartridge cell should be
implanted beneath the skin on the back side of the middle one-third of
the ear as illustrated in the drawing. The implant
must not be closer to the head than the edge of the auricular cartilage
ring farthest from the head. The location for insertion of the needle is
a point toward the tip of the ear at least a needle length away from
the intended deposition site. Avoid injuring the large arteries, veins
and cartilage of the ear.
Insert the Needle
With one hand firmly grasp the ear. With the other hand
insert needle point through the skin and ease forward on a lateral plane
until the entire length of the needle is under the skin.
Implant the Pellets
After inserting the needle fully in the correct implant
position, squeeze the trigger fully. As the needle is withdrawn from the
ear, the controlled-pressure plunger action properly deposits the
implant in the needle track. This procedure should prevent breakage or
crushing of pellets if otherwise forced into contact with tough
fibrous-tissue underlying the skin. The length and total contact area of
the single dose are designed to permit absorption of the hormones after
implantation to stimulate good weight gain. Broken or crushed pellets
may interfere with rates of gain.
Clean the Needle
Clean the implanter needle with alcohol or a properly diluted germicidal solution prior to implanting the next animal.
Store in a refrigerator (2°-8°C; 36°-46° F) and protect from sunlight.
Use before the expiration date printed on foil pouch.

For Use In Animals Only
INDICATIONS FOR USE: This product
contains trenbolone acetate and estradiol for increased rate of weight
gain and improved feed efficiency in a slow-release delivery system. Do
not use in veal calves. Effectiveness and animal safety in veal calves
have not been established.
DOSAGE: Administer 1 implant per animal according to the following instructions.
NOTE: Studies have demonstrated that the administration of COMPONENT® TE-H can result in decreased marbling scores when compared to non-implanted heifers.
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS: Study the
instructions which should be followed carefully at all times, avoiding
short cuts. Skin infection can be avoided by properly preparing implant
site and implanter. During fly season use fly repellent on implant site.
One designated team member should always do the implanting. Cleanliness
of hands and instruments is important at all times.
WARNING: Not to be used in animals intended for subsequent breeding, or in dairy animals.
Implant one dose - 8 pellets (entire contents of one cartridge) - in
the ear subcutaneously. Any other site of implantation is in violation
of Federal Law. DO NOT attempt to salvage implantation site for animal
feed or human food.
