Simultaneous injections of prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF) and gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) or saline were given to 32 diestrous dairy cows to test the ability of GnRH to improve estrous and ovulation synchrony beyond that of PGF alone. Cows were randomly assigned to receive PGF on Day 8 or Day 10 of the estrous cycle (estrus = Day 0), and all cows(More)
The objective of this study was to estimate the effect on calving risk of interval from AI date until scheduled date of pregnancy examination. First AI (n = 7105) from 65 dairy herds in the United States and Canada were followed for 294 d to determine whether cows calved. Calving was modeled as a function of the number of days in the interval, herd, season,(More)
Two yearling, paternal half-sibling Appaloosa fillies were ovariohysterectomized for treatment of multiple uterocervical leiomyomas. The tumors recurred in both fillies, originating from cervical tissue that could not be removed at surgery. Previously reported cases of uterine leiomyoma in the mare have been of solitary tumors in older mares that were(More)
To test the hypothesis that bull antisperm antibodies have the capacity to interfere with fertilization, antisperm antibodies were generated in three 13-mo-old Holstein bulls by auto-immunizing each bull with sperm three times. All bulls produced serum antisperm IgG1 and IgG2 antibodies. No serum antisperm IgA nor seminal plasma antisperm antibodies of any(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the benefits that were associated with pregnancy testing by use of transrectal palpation during the period 30 to 65 days after unsuccessful insemination of dairy cows. DESIGN Nonconcurrent, cohort study. ANIMALS Cows in 15 dairy herds in the United States and Canada. PROCEDURE Reproductive records of cows (n = 713) that did not(More)
Simultaneous injections of PGF and FSH or saline were given to 32 Holstein cows to test their combined ability to improve estrous and ovulation synchrony beyond that of PGF alone. All the cows were randomly assigned to receive PGF on either Day 8 or Day 10 of the estrous cycle (estrus = Day 0), and all the cows in each group were further assigned to(More)
