Abstract

The objective of this retrospective study was to determine the factors affecting pregnancy per artificial insemination (P/AI) and pregnancy loss in lactating dairy cattle. Breeding records (n=1466) for 5 consecutive years were evaluated from one dairy herd. The effects of type of breeding [timed ...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were to (1) evaluate factors associated with variation in circulating anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentrations, (2) establish an optimum AMH threshold predictive of pregnancy to first artificial insemination (P/AI), (3) examine the relationship between AMH and...

Abstract

The objective was to evaluate in-line milk progesterone (mP4) data to determine dynamics of pre- and post-insemination mP4 profiles and their associations with parity and outcomes of artificial insemination (AI) in Holstein cows. Milk progesterone (ng/mL) was quantified at pre-determined time...

Abstract

Our objectives were to characterize parameters of luteal activity based on milk progesterone concentration (P4c) data from before and after artificial insemination (AI) and to evaluate their potential association with fertility in Holstein cows. Records of AI events (n=4,353) and of milk P4c...

Abstract

Anogenital distance (AGD) serves as a marker for prenatal androgenization, reproductive development, and fertility in humans and rodents. The primary objectives of this observational study in lactating dairy cows were to (1) characterize the distribution and variability of AGD, (2) determine the...
