Abstract

The main objective of the implementation of Artificial Insemination (AI) in cattle is to produce a sustained genetic progress in the herd. Although AI is an old reproductive biotechnology, its widespread implementation is very recent and is mainly due to the use of protocols that allows the AI...

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

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 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

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

56 cows received a norgestomet implant and an injection of norgestomet and oestradiol valerate; half (n = 28) received 500 IU equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) at implant removal, 9 days later. A third group (n = 25) received 2 injections of cloprostenol (500 µg) 11 days apart. The percentage of...

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

The objective was to determine the efficacy of a previously used CIDR or melengestrol acetate (MGA; 0.5 mg/head/day) for resynchronization of oestrus in beef heifers not pregnant to timed-AI (TAI). In three experiments and a field trial, heifers were reinseminated 6-12 h after first detection of...

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...
