The residual effect of diethylstilbestrol on fat finish in turkeys

, : The residual effect of diethylstilbestrol on fat finish in turkeys. Poultry Sci 40(1): 265-266

Subcutaneous implantation of a 15 mg diethylstilbestrol pellet into large type bronze male turkeys at 10 weeks of age resulted in improved fat finish at 14 weeks of age. This advantage in fat finish over the control group was thereafter maintained to 20 weeks of age. Ten weeks after treatment a degree of fat deposition satisfactory for marketing purposes had been reached by the diethylstilbestrol-implanted group. It required an additional 3 week period for the untreated controls to attain a similar degree of fat finish.
