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

Repeat breeding is an important factor affecting economic success in dairy management. The objective of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of transfer of frozen-thawed IVF embryos in establishing pregnancy in repeat-breeding Holstein cattle. Cumulus oocyte complexes were collected by...

Abstract

Treatments designed to synchronize luteolysis, preovulatory follicular development, and ovulation, and resynchronize oestrus after a first AI have improved responses to synchronization treatments. Protocols based only on the use of PGF result in variable onset of oestrus. Concentrations of...

Abstract

Greater milk production in modern dairy cattle has led to greater nutritional needs, increased rates of post-partum anoestrus, reduced oestrus detection rates, lower conception and pregnancy rates and a higher incidence of embryonic mortality. In addition, larger herds have resulted in management...

Abstract

Recent protocols which provide possibilities for oestrus synchronization that is precise enough to permit fixed-timed artificial insemination or embryo transfer without the need for oestrus detection are described. Synchronization of oestrus and ovulation; the use of GnRH, pLH, progesterone and...

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

Our expanding knowledge of the control of follicular wave dynamics during the bovine oestrous cycle has resulted in renewed enthusiasm for the prospects of precisely controlling the follicular and luteal dynamics and the time of ovulation. Follicular wave development can be controlled mechanically...

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...

Abstract

The objective was to determine reproductive performance following AI in beef heifers given estradiol to synchronize ovarian follicular wave emergence and estradiol or GnRH to synchronize ovulation in a two-dose PGF-based protocol. In Experiment 1, 561 cycling (confirmed by ultrasonography), Angus...
