Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the effects of low versus physiologic plasma progesterone concentrations during the ovulatory wave on fertility in cattle. Suckled beef cows (Bos taurus; n=129) and pubertal heifers (Bos taurus; n=150) at random stages of the estrous cycle were given a...

Abstract

The objective was to synchronize follicular wave emergence among cattle for synchronization of oestrus and ovulation, and to determine pregnancy rate after AI at observed oestrus. At random stages of the oestrous cycle, a controlled internal drug release device (CIDR-B) was inserted intravaginally...

Abstract

The objective of this experiment was to compare two progestins and three treatments for synchronizing follicular wave emergence and ovulation in protocols for fixed-time AI in beef heifers. On day 0 (beginning of the experiment), Angus and Angus-Simmental cross beef heifers at random stages of the...

Abstract

In the 1st experiment, 18 beef heifers were assigned to non-ablation and 20 to ablation groups. In non-ablated heifers, superstimulatory treatment was given as a single subcutaneous injection (Follitropin-V, 400 mg) at mid-dioestrus to coincide with emergence of the spontaneous follicular wave 8-12 ...

Abstract

Two experiments were conducted to compare pregnancy rates when GnRH or estradiol were given to synchronize ovarian follicular wave emergence and ovulation in an MGA-based oestrus synchronization programme. Crossbred beef cattle were fed melengestrol acetate (MGA, 0.5 mg per day) for 7 days...
