Summary Of Efficacy

p-agonist lean efficiency enhancing agents are often referred to as repartitioning agents because of their ability to redirect nutrients away from adipose tissue and toward muscle.[9] In general, the effects of p-agonists are improved feed utilization efficiency, increased leanness, increased dressing percentage (carcass weight/live weight), and increased rate of weight gain. These effects have been demonstrated in lambs, broilers, turkeys, beef cattle, and swine.[4] Several factors including diet, dosage and duration of treatment, age, weight, and genetics have been shown to influence the response to p-agonists (Table 1) and are important to the successful implementation of p-agonists to livestock.
