    Hormone Growth Promotants ( HGP's)

    Hormonal growth promotants (HGPs) are a group of veterinary drugs that mimic the growth hormones in cattle. HGPs are widely used in Australia and many other countries.

    HGPs increase muscle growth, mature size and lean yield, and tend to delay fat deposition.
