Revalor®-200 is an implant containing 200mg of trenbolone acetate and 20mg estradiol. Each implant consists of 10 small yellow pellets. Ten implants are provided in a cartridge.

Manufactured by a non-sterilizing process.

Indications
This product contains trenbolone acetate and estradiol in a slow-release delivery system which increases rate of weight gain and improves feed efficiency in steers and heifers fed in confinement for slaughter.

Do not use in veal calves. Effectiveness and animal safety in veal calves have not been established.

NOTE:
Revalor®-200 is not better for increased average daily gain or improved feed efficiency than Revalor®-IH (140mg trenbolone acetate/14mg estradiol) in heifers fed in confinement for slaughter.

Studies have demonstrated that the administration of Revalor®-200 can result in decreased marbling scores when compared to non-implanted steers and heifers.
