Effect of timing of growth implant administration on bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) antibody titers of newly received beef calves. Control = no growth implant administered; IMP0 = growth implant administered on d 0; IMP14 = growth implant administered on d 14; IMP28 = growth implant administered on d 28. Treatment, P = 0.61; day, P < 0.001; treatment × day, P = 0.13.

Effect of timing of growth implant administration on serum NEFA of newly received beef calves. Control = no growth implant administered; IMP0 = growth implant administered on d 0; IMP14 = growth implant administered on d 14; IMP28 = growth implant administered on d 28. Treatment, P = 0.82; day, P < 0.0001; treatment × day, P = 1.00.

Effect of timing of growth implant administration on blood urea N of newly received beef calves. Control = no growth implant administered; IMP0 = growth implant administered on d 0; IMP14 = growth implant administered on d 14; IMP28 = growth implant administered on d 28. Treatment, P = 0.72; day, P < 0.0001; treatment × day, P = 0.03. a,bWithin a day, least squares means differ, P < 0.05.

Effect of timing of growth implant administration on blood platelet concentrations. Control = no growth implant administered; IMP0 = growth implant administered on d 0; IMP14 = growth implant administered on d 14; IMP28 = growth implant administered on d 28. Data were log transformed before statistical analysis and least squares means are the geometric means; the SEM is 0.13 for the log transformed data. Treatment, P = 0.93; day, P < 0.0001; treatment × day, P = 0.02. a,bWithin a day, least squares means differ, P < 0.05.
