Abstract

Protocols designed to control follicular wave dynamics and ovulation in cattle have reduced, and even eliminated, the need for estrus detection. The addition of progestin-releasing devices and gonadotropin treatments, such as equine chorionic gonadotropin, have provided possibilities for increased...

Abstract

This is a review of the physiology and endocrinology of the estrous cycle and how ovarian physiology can be manipulated and controlled for timed artificial insemination (TAI) in beef and dairy cattle. Estrus detection is required for artificial insemination (AI), but it is done poorly in dairy...

Abstract

The development of treatments that control follicular wave dynamics during the bovine oestrous cycle has resulted in interesting possibilities for the precise control of follicular wave emergence and the time of ovulation. For superstimulation, follicular wave emergence can be controlled by...

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...
