Component E-H Implants with Tylan Indications

For increased rate of weight gain and improved feed efficiency in beef heifers weighing 185 to 365 kg. Tylan is included as a local antibacterial for reducing the incidence of abscess formation at the implant site.

Each CARTRIDGE BELT holds 20 doses of COMPONENT E-H Implants with Tylan. Each dose of 9 pellets consists of 8 pellets containing a total of 200 mg testosterone propionate USP and 20 mg estradiol benzoate plus 1 pellet containing 29 mg tylosin tartrate as a local antibacterial for reducing the incidence of abscess formation at the implant site. COMPONENT E-H Implants with Tylan provide complementary amounts of these hormones to help speed up the heifer’s weight gaining mechanism, and help improve feed efficiency. COMPONENT E-H Implants with Tylan are recommended for use in beef heifers weighing 185 to 365 kg.

Directions For Use

For subcutaneous ear implantation in animals use a Component Implanter to implant the entire contents of one cartridge (9 pellets) per heifer. The pellets must not be removed from the cartridge prior to implantation. The proper implantation technique is fully described. Never sacrifice careful, clean technique for speed of implantation.


COMPONENT E-H Implants with Tylan are not recommended for use in bulling or extremely restless animals. Not intended for use in breeding animals or dairy heifers. It is good husbandry to isolate bullers. COMPONENT E-H Implants with Tylan are neither intended nor recommended for use in ovariectomized (spayed) heifers.


Do not use in calves to be processed for veal. Implant COMPONENT E-H Implants with Tylan in the ear only; any other location may result in condemnation of the carcass. Do not attempt to salvage the implanted ear for human or animal food. Keep out of reach of children.

Component E-H Implants with Tylan Caution

Bulling, vaginal and rectal prolapse, udder development, ventral edema and elevated tailheads have occasionally been reported in animals implanted with testosterone propionate and estradiol benzoate implants.


Do not freeze. Store at 10° to 27°C and protect from direct sunlight.


General Instructions

Study the instructions which should be followed carefully at all times. Avoid short cuts. Skin infections can be avoided by properly preparing implant site. 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.

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.

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 preparation and strength of solution. Avoid getting into animal’s eyes.

Where To Implant

The full contents of the cartridge (all 9 pellets) 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 auricular cartilage ring farthest from the head. The location of insertion of the needle is a point toward the tip of the ear and 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 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. This 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 and may lead to undesirable side effects such as noted in the CAUTION.

Clean The Needle

Disinfect the implanter needle with a germicidal solution prior to implanting the next animal.

Contains: 100 implants; five (5) cartridge belts of 20 implants each, sealed in sanitary foil pouches.

The weight increase is dependent on the quality of the animal and the feed. Maximum growth will be attained with good quality stock that is free from parasitism and disease.
