Cattle implants contain a variety of growth promoting hormones. For our purposes, the only implants that are of interest contain either trenbolone acetate or testosterone. Listed below are the implants available in the United States that meet these criteria:

Implants Containing Trenbolone


Each cartridge contains 10 implants
Each implant contains:
8 mg estradiol benzoate
40 mg trenbolone acetate

Each cartridge contains 10 implants
Each implant contains:
24 mg estradiol benzoate
120 mg trenbolone acetate

Each cartridge contains 10 implants.
Each implant contains:

140 mg trenbolone acetate

Each cartridge contains 10 implants.
Each implant contains:

14 mg estradiol benzoate
140 mg trenbolone acetate


Each cartridge contains 10 implants.
Each implant contains:

200 mg trenbolone acetate

synovex plus

Synovex Plus
Each cartridge contains 10 implants.
Each implant contains:

28 mg of estradiol benzoate
200 mg trenbolone acetate

Implants Containing Testosterone


Each cartridge contains 10 implants.
Each implant contains:

20 mg estradiol benzoate
200 mg testosterone propionate


Each cartridge contains 20 implants.
Each implant contains:

20 mg estradiol benzoate
200 mg testosterone propionate

Before we begin, please notice that most of the above implants contain estradiol benzoate. Using any of the above implants without removing the estrogen component first will result in a variety of unpleasant side effects.

With the ever-decreasing availability of real anabolic steroids, many athletes are turning to more exotic and esoteric means of obtaining the drugs they need to compete in their chosen sport. For some, this has meant turning to the use of cattle implants. This article will fully explore the use of cattle implants for performance enhancement by examining the various implants, methods of application, and steps for breaking these implants down into injectable substances. There are two basic methods of application athletes use to utilize the hormones found in these implants. The first method involves the use of dimethyl sulfoxide or DMSO. DMSO is a natural solvent derived from wood pulp. It acts as a transdermal carrier, and when mixed with the ground up pellets of these implants, will actually carry the hormones through the skin and into the bloodstream. However, this method has several drawbacks. Toxicity becomes an issue as DMSO will carry any substance below a given molecular weight through the skin and into the blood. This can include some of the binders and glues found in the implant. Additionally, DMSO can be very irritating to the skin and causes the individual using it to release a very strong odor from both their breath and skin. DMSO can be found on the Internet at www.dmso.com or www.dmso.net. Although DMSO should not be used on humans, anyone planning on doing so must not use the industrial grade! Be sure any DMSO you buy is of 99.9% purity.

Athletes choosing the DMSO route of administration will usually apply it on a daily basis due to its rapid clearance from the body when applied via this method. Dosages vary, although 60 mg per day seems to be very effective for most.

Athletes planning to use cattle implants via the DMSA method should be aware of the following:

1.The pellets must be very finely ground for this method to work effectively. Don't simply crush a few pellets with a spoon and think the DMSO will magically leech the hormones out from the large particulates.

2.The DMSO should be mixed with water at a 1/1 ratio. For those of you that aren't mathematically inclined, this would give us a solution of 50% DMSO and 50% water. Be sure to use 99.9% pure DMSO!

3.Use as little of the DMSO/water mixture as possible to apply the finely ground up powder. Using more than is necessary will not make the absorption of hormone more efficient and creates a huge mess.

4.Remember that DMSO is a transdermal agent and will carry most substances directly into your blood! This requires that the area of skin used for application is thoroughly cleaned before applying the DMSO/water/hormone mixture. The area should be washed with a non-perfumed soap and then washed again under hot water to completely remove any residue from the soap.

5.After applying the mixture to the skin, it's important to let it dry completely before putting any garment on top of the area of application. Remember, not only is DMSO a transdermal carrier, but it also acts as a solvent. Any substance with a small enough molecular weight will be carried into your body by the DMSO which can include substances on and in your clothes like detergents and dyes. Some athletes will apply plastic wrap around the area of application to ensure that no foreign matter is carried into the body.

The second method of administering these hormones requires that the implants are broken down into an injectable substance. Out of desperation, some athletes simply crush the pellets and mix them with whatever sterile oil or water they have handy. While this certainly will get the desired hormone into the body, it's very risky as the resulting compound is not sterile and contains all of the binders and glues found in each pellet.

Many athletes utilize a slightly more complex method of formulating an injectable that solves the problems created by simply mixing the crushed pellets in the method described above. By mixing the crushed pellets with propylene glycol, benzyl alcohol, and polyethylene glycol, it's possible to create a much more effective injectable that is resistant to microbial contamination.

The following materials are required to complete this experiment:

-trenbolone acetate
-propylene glycol
-benzyl alcohol
-polyethylene glycol
-syringe filters

The polyethylene glycol (PEG), propylene glycol (PPG), and benzyl alcohol (BA) should comprise 60, 30, and 10% of the final mixture respectively. Therefore, if it was your intention of producing 100 ml of injectable, you would need 60 ml of PEG, 30 ml of PPG, and 10 ml of BA. For 50 ml, you would use 30, 15, and 5. The final concentration of trenbolone in your injectable is determined by how dividing the total mg of amount of trenbolone by the total ml volume of the solution. For example, if you desired to make 50 ml of injectable with a final concentration of 50mg/ml, you would need to start with 2500 mg of the steroid.

The procedure is as follows:

1.The required amounts of PPG and BA should be mixed together.

2.The required amount of steroid should be added to the solution while it is heated. It's best to immerse a sterile container containing the solution and pellets into hot water so that the temperature can of the mixture can be carefully controlled. Care should be taken not to allow the solution to become too hot.

3.After the steroid has dissolved completely into the PPG/BA solution, add the PEG and mix the solution until it is evenly distributed.

4. Draw the solution up in a syringe and pass is through the syringe filter into a sterile container. This will remove any particulates that may be present and help sterilize the solution.

5.As an optional step, some athletes will initially dissolve the pellets in acetone. The resultant solution is then poured through several coffee filter, catching the glues and binders. The end solution should be left to evaporate until you are left with pure trenbolone crystals.

The third and final method of producing an injectable is to purchase an experimental kit designed for that purpose. The advantages of purchasing a kit is that all of the materials necessary for the experiment are provided for you at very little expense. One very popular kit is profiled later in this article.

Removing Estradiol Benzoate from Testosterone Implants
Any athlete who uses an implant containing estradiol will rapidly find themselves shopping for comfortable bras. No amount of anti-estrogen can block the effects of the large amount of female hormone contained within these implants. The only way to effectively use these implants is to remove the estradiol component prior to administration.

So, how can the estradiol benzoate (EB) be separated from the testosterone propionate (TP)? By examining the Merck Index, it's clear that while TP is readily soluble in ether, EB is not. Various kits are available that take advantage of the different properties of TP and EB. Using one of these kits are a must before using either Synovex or Implus-H. These kits will not remove 100% of the estrogen contained within the implant so concomitant use of an estrogen blocker is required.

The Interview with Animal

For those of you unfamiliar with the individual who refers to himself as "Animal" we thought this would be a great opportunity to introduce you to one of the more creative minds in bodybuilding. Animal is somewhat of an authority on cattle implants, providing kits to turn the pellets into a sterile injectable solution. Of course, these are designed simply to make these pellets for effective for use in animals, and are not designed for human use. We contacted Animal and he contributed the following brief interview.

AE: So, what initially inspired you to create a kit that would convert an implant to an injectable?

Animal: I didn't like using DMSO and my wife didn't like me using it either! Being a chemist with a challenge and seeing that many wanted an injectable because they didn't like DMSO was also the motive. And of course, I saw there was a market which nobody had exploited for money. Not that I saw it as a way to become a millionaire, but a way to get a few extra bucks and allow me to write and do other experiments which the athletic community could benefit from.

AE: What do you feel are the advantages of administering these hormones through injection vs. an implant?

Animal: When compared to the DMSO transdermal method you can use 1/2 or less of the injectable. DMSO use dictated the application of 150-200 mg EOD. Feedback is indicating that injected solutions give more muscular and less marbled animals. (Your animals are going to be leaner.) However, the most important benefit is that there is no STINK or skin rash from the DMSO. Another problem that we have to realize with DMSO is how fast it gets to the bloodstream. DMSO gets ALL of your dose into the blood very rapidly. It gets into your blood and then it's gone, much like an oral D-bol or androstenedione dose. The presence of AS spikes way up within an hour and then it's gone. Therefore, if you wanted to have a constant supply of tren in the blood you would need to apply DMSO 3-4 times a day. The oil gives you a more consistent and longer lasting level of trenbolone in the blood.

AE: Have you had any feedback from ranchers using trenbolone acetate in their cattle? What kind of increased growth are they seeing?

Animal: Most are reporting 5-15 lbs of lean mass over their cycle which could be in the range of 4-12 weeks. I don't believe in those 2 and 3 week cycles. They also report a very good increase in strength which starts increasing around 4 weeks. Nevertheless, the most noticeable qualities are increased vascularity and hardness.

AE: I know many of our reader enjoy experimenting with chemistry. What yield should they shoot for when attempting to isolate testosterone from say, a Synovex implant?

Animal: I get around 90% yield, but since most don't weigh the end product, I formulate for 80%. This is still 16,000 mg from 20,000 mg of Synovex. [Editors note: One cartridge of Synovex contains 2000 mg of testosterone propionate. When he refers to 20,000 mg, he is referring to the testosterone contained in a box of 10 cartridges, 100 actual implants.]

AE: How effective are your kits at removing estradiol?

Animal: The ether method will work, but is difficult to do and you could still get estradiol in your final product if not careful. The only other way is to remove the esters off all the AS, then use the solubility properties of the estradiol benzoate (Eb) to remove it from the testosterone propionate (Tp). Sorry if I'm not more specific, but I'm the only one I know that actually knows how to do this!

AE: I know that many ranchers are concerned with the sterility of these products, not wanting their cattle to get abscesses and such. Realistically, how sterile are these products once converted?

Animal: The syringe filters are to thank for the sterility. 0.45 micron syringe filters stop all bacteria so sterility is not really a problem. I have a good rapport with my customers and I have never heard on one infection from using those filters in over 2 years and over that time I have sold 5,000 syringe filters for various purposes.

Editors Note: Animal sells a variety of items that can be helpful to all of you potential ranchers out there. With his permission, his email address is listed here. Happy ranching!


The Famous Bytor Post

We should all thank Bytor for his excellent step-by-step instructions on how to break down the finaplix cartridges. With Bytor's permission, we've reprinted his post in its entirety.

Here is what you should have to convert 1 cart of Finaplix -h to an liquid for injecting. One cart will create approximately 22-24cc's of 75mg/cc Trenbolone.

Items include:

-Vial 1 containing the magic dissolving liquid
-Vial 2 containing the oil based liquid
-Vial 3 is a sterile vial
-20 ml sterile syringe
-Sterile fine filter (upper right of pic)--(All there is now is a 0.45 micron Glass GD/X filter, no coarse filters needed)
-2 coarse filters (look like push up tops)--no longer supplied in kit because they are not needed
-2 18g needles
-1 cart of finaplix -h (sold separately) (you could put in that this will do 2000mg of any hormone such as androstendione or norandrostenedione as well.)

kit items

1.Take metal cap off of vial 1, remove rubber cap and insert pellets into vial. Let it sit like this overnight. The pellets will begin to dissolve. The next morning, take vial 1 and swirl it to mix the contents, and let it sit again the rest of the day. I have found that you can totally dissolve the pellets in this manner without using the heating process. It you want to speed things up you can use the heating process

. step 1

2.(if required): If the heating process is required for your situation, boil some water on the stove in a pot. Once boiling take the pot off of the hot stove eye. Place the vial in the water as shown below, and let the water warm the mixture for a minute or so and then take it out and swirl it. Repeat until all pellets are dissolved. WARNING: do not let the mixture get too hot, it will start to turn brown and the glue/binders will clog your filters later in the process.

step 2

3.Take vial 2 and put its contents into vial 1. This is adding the oil to the solution. Once added, swirl the contents and let it sit overnight (or an equivalent amount of time).

step 3


4.Take the 20ml syringe and place the 18g needle on it and draw up the "translucent" part of the separated solution in vial 1. Do your best not to draw any of the yellow glue and binders. To get the last little bit you can turn the vial to its side and draw up a couple of extra cc's. Also: The remaining solution has a lot of Tren left ( About two weeks worth...let it sit a few more days and you can draw up more solution. A few binders wont hurt you and you will get about 5ml more.

step 4

5.After drawing the translucent mixture, place the course filter over the end of the syringe and filter the solution into vial 2. You will notice the solution gets clearer. You have 2 coarse filters in case the first one clogs.

step 5

....separation of the glue/binders is complete.

separation complete

6.To further filter out any left over particles. Draw the solution in vial 2 up with the second needle

step 6

7.Then, using the sterile fine filter (being careful not to contaminate it), filter the contents into vial 3.

step 7

THIS IS YOUR FINAL PRODUCT: 22-24ml of 75mg Trenbolone!!!


Hope this helps!

Addendum: Animal's detailed instructions.....
Read the directions first and 'variations' section! The steps are designed to get it done fast and be 'almost' idiot proof.

What you should have in your 'Sterile' kit:

-A sealed clear vial with 4-8ml magic solution marked '1'.
-A sealed clear vial with oil in it marked '2'.
-A sealed clear or amber, sterile, vial marked '3'.
-Two 18 gauge 1.5 inch needles.
-One 20ml syringe. This is the largest syringe we can use with the sterile filters.
-1 clear, sterile, 0.45um GMF sterile syringe filter.
-A real cheap coffee filter.

What you should have in an 'EZ' kit:

-A large sealed, clear vial marked '1' with 3-5ml magic solution.
-A large clear sterile vial marked '2' with oil in it.

Note: In the following steps, the term 'hormone' can mean any AS type structure including, but not limited to, androstenedione, norandrostenedione and other 'pro-hormones'. It can also mean outright steroids in countries where they are legal. Please do not do anything illegal with the kits.

How to keep a bottle sterile:

1.Tear out the aluminum center circle of the amber bottle.
2.Tear off the rest of the aluminum.
3.Using syringe filters or sterile contents from the clear bottle inject back into amber bottle or just pull the stopper out and pour whatever you want into it and reseal. As long as you don't touch the lip of the bottle with something non-sterile it will still be sterile.

Read directions all the way through, first.

'Easy' Kit Directions

1. Add 2000mg of your favorite 'hormone' to vial '1' and let set overnight . (see V1 for an alternative)

2. Place vial '1' into some water which has been boiled or directly onto a heating element at its lowest setting unit the crystals dissolve and any little bits of 'pill' filler are dissolved. When using a heating element you should be able to hold the vial at a point halfway down the vial. If you can't hold the vial, the heat is too high! If the solution turns black it is too hot. Reddish brown is ok as that is the color of the glue.

3. Swirl until the color is even which should be gold/orange/caramel for the most popularly used 2000mg powders. The solution should not be black/red if your 'pills' are new and you have keep the heat within the parameters explained in step 2.

4. Replace stopper and let set 1-2 hours to allow the fillers and glue to settle.

(Next Day)
AS THE BOTTLE SITS RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE 100% YIELD OF 75MG/ML. Well, actually you have 2000mg of 'hormone/pro-hormone' suspended in about 5ml of solution! Nevertheless, DO NOT inject this or it will burn like hell without the addition of the oil.

5. Pour vial '2' liquid contents into bottle number 1. The fillers and glues will sit on the bottom of vial '1'. Bottle 2 is sterile with sterile oil.

6. Swirl until the colors are even.

7. For better sterility put into a 250 degree oven for 20 minutes.

8. Use on research or farm animals, or discard after you have successfully completed this experiment.

'Sterile' Directions

1. Add your 2000mg of hormone to vial '1'. If you have a Double kit you add 4000. (See V1 for an alternative)

2. Boil some water or turn on an electric element to its lowest setting.

3. Place vial '1' into the water or directly onto a heating element at its lowest setting until the crystals dissolve and any little bits of 'pill' filler are dissolved. When using a heating element you should be able to hold the vial. If you can't hold the vial, the heat is too high.

4. Swirl until the color is even which should be gold/orange/caramel for the most commonly used 2000mg of 'hormone/pro-hormone' powders.

5. Let set 1 hour or until cooled to room temp with the stopper in.

AS THE BOTTLE SITS RIGHT NOW YOU HAVE 100% YIELD OF 75MG/ML. Well, actually you have 2000mg of your 'hormone/pro-hormone' in about 5ml of solution! YOUR PATIENCE AND ABILITY TO FOLLOW THE FILTERING DIRECTIONS WILL DETERMINE YOUR FINAL TOTAL ML. FURTHERMORE, IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS YOU NEED TO NOTIFY ME! Even if you have done something wrong and the filters clog you STILL have 75mg/ml and we can save it.

6. Add vial '2' to vial '1' and swirl until the colors are even. You will see a white cloudy precipitate and the glue dropping out and the solution becoming cloudy. This precipitate is a necessary evil and IS NOT your 'hormone'. Due to the glue, an excess of one of the chemicals is used to make the heating steps workable or the hormone and fillers would stick to the bottom in the clump. When the second vial is added, this extra drops out.

7. Let set overnight to allow the pot to settle or proceed to 8 if you are in a hurry. (See V3) You will have a layer of yellow binder in the bottom and then a small layer of white crystals and then the solution.

Note: You can skip steps 8-16 if your 'hormone' has no fillers/binders/or glue in it or if there is no cloudiness. If it were me, I would draw off all the clear and sterile filter and then go back to step 8-16 to 'squeeze' the rest of the 'hormone' out of the filler/glue mess.

8. Insert a funnel into an empty clear vial and insert the coffee filter. If you don't have a funnel to fit into a vial, you can secure the coffee filter over any glass container with a rubber band. (See V2)

9. Pour the liquid solution from vial 1 into the coffee filter leaving as much filler behind as possible. Turn the vial on its side.

10. Allow all of that 'pour' to drain through the filter or until the drips stop. When that is done draining add all the rest of the junk left in the bottle to the coffee filter.

11. You may want to let is set overnight as the draining will be slow due to the filler.

12. Close up the coffee filter and wring it from the edges inward to where the 'solution' was.

13. Begin twisting from the open edges of the filter. A 'Balloon' will develop.

14. Press gently onto the balloon while holding onto the twisted part of the filter.

15. Twist the filter evermore into the balloon area, but be careful not to tear the filter. Wring it out like a miniature towel. This procedure lets you get all but about 1ml out of the coffee filter.

Note: In case you think you have doubts about what the brown residue is in the coffee filter, you can test it! Scrape the residue into a small clear glass vial or container. Add 5-10ml of methanol or acetone. The brown stuff will begin to turn white (filler) and the liquid you added will take on a tan tint. The white will stay on the bottom and will not go into solution. Your liquid will not turn yellow because there are no hormones in the residue. (No applause, please) Discard the test product

16. (Pre-filter and old style filter insertion. If you have the GMX or GDF filters you can go directly to step 17. A. Draw the coffee filtered solution into the syringe. B. Place a white pre-filter onto the tip of the syringe. C. Push the liquid through into vial #2. D. After the solution is all into vial 2 and pre-filtered remove the pre-filter. E. Draw 20ml into the syringe. F. Go to step 20.)

17. Draw 20ml oil out of the container holding your caramel colored, coffee filtered solution.

18. Turn the syringe upside down.

19. Remove the needle.

20. Open the sterile filter package, but leave the filter in the plastic!

21. Holding the filter through the plastic, place the sterile syringe filter onto the syringe. (See V2 for an alternative)

22. Remove the stopper from vial 3 and place it into the now empty sterile syringe container. (See V4 for an alternative for which you don't need to remove the stopper.)

23. Place the syringe filter immediately onto the mouth of the sterile vial '3'.

24. Push all the contents of the syringe into the vial by grasping the syringe with 2 hands. Using your index fingers or thumbs push down on the plunger while continuing to hold onto the syringe with 2 hands. DO NOT EXERT EXTREME PRESSURE DOWNWARD ONTO THE SYRINGE FILTERS! If you move the wrong way the vial will go shooting across the table and there goes your experiment. Also, if you push too hard the flow through the syringe filter will slow. It should take 5-6 second per ml of oil flowing through the syringe filter.

If you have any questions on this step you need to email me. With the new filters and procedure there is no longer any excuse for clogged filters. These filters will not clog even if you do 100ml!

25. When the oil is out of the syringe you will need to reload. Grasping the syringe filter by its sides, unscrew the syringe and LEAVE THE SYRINGE FILTER ON THE VIAL! Reload the syringe as in steps:16-19

26. When the oil is out of the syringe there is still some oil left in the filter and you want to salvage that. Remove the syringe filter from the syringe by holding onto the sides of the syringe filter and unscrewing the syringe. LEAVE THE SYRINGE FILTER ON THE VIAL. Draw air into the syringe. Put the syringe filter back on. Blow the air through the filter. Do this 1-2 times.

27. Replace the rubber stopper when all the oil has been pushed through the syringe.

28. Use for animals, research, or discard. This practice in crystalline solutions and sterility is not intended for human use.


Variation 1:

Put pellets into vial one and then place into/onto your heat source until pellets are dissolved. Should take 1/2 hour.

Variation 2:

1.Place the 18 gauge needle onto the 20ml syringe.

2.Draw 20ml of oil out of the container holding your caramel colored solution.

3.Turn the syringe upside down.

4.Remove the needle.

5.Open the sterile filter package, but leave the filter in the plastic!

6.Holding the filter through the plastic, place the sterile syringe filter onto the syringe.

7.Place the second sterile needle onto the syringe filter.

8.Place the needle through the stopper of the sterile vial, '3'.

9.Push all the contents of the syringe into the vial by grasping the syringe with 2 hands. Using your index fingers or thumbs push down on the plunger while continuing to hold onto the syringe with 2 hands. DO NOT EXERT EXTREME PRESSURE DOWNWARD ONTO THE SYRINGE FILTERS! If you move the wrong way the vial will go shooting across the table and there goes your experiment. Also, if you push too hard the flow through the syringe filter will slow. It should take 5-6 second per ml of oil flowing through the syringe filter.

Variation 3:

If all the binders settle to the bottom you can proceed to step 17. I would then Pour the remaining binder mix into the coffee filter set-up and let it drain out. You should be able to get 5 more ml out of that.

Variation 4:

Tear out the center seal of the sterile vial. Insert a needle only into the vial to relieve pressure. Place a needle onto the syringe filter and go to step 23.
