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 objective was to determine the effect of plasma progesterone concentration and the duration of proestrus during growth of the ovulatory follicle on fertility in beef cattle. Heifers (N=61) and postpartum cows (N=79) were assigned randomly to four groups in a two-by-two design involving...

Abstract

The objective was to determine the effects of the duration of progesterone exposure during the ovulatory wave on fertility (pregnancy rate) in beef cattle. We tested the hypothesis that short-progesterone exposure during the growing and early-static phase of the ovulatory follicle (analogous to the ...

Abstract

Three experiments were conducted to determine the effects of presynchronization and treatment with equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) on corpus luteum (CL) and ovarian follicular development, plasma progesterone concentrations, and pregnancy rates in beef heifers subjected to a gonadotropin...

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...
