Abstract

Meat producers in this State are showing considerable interest in the possible benefits to be gained by implanting pellets containing the growth-promoting hormone, hexoestrol, into the ears of sheep when they are being prepared for market. Since World War II a considerable amount of research into the use of growth-promoting hormones with sheep and lambs has been conducted in the United States of America and the United Kingdom. Quite recently, investigations have been carried out in Australia and New Zealand and this work is being intensified.
