Reduced progesterone concentration during growth of the first follicular wave affects embryo quality but has no effect on embryo survival post transfer in lactating dairy cows.
Fertility of lactating dairy cows is associated with reduced progesterone (P(4)) concentration compared with nonlactating animals. The objective of the current study was to determine whether P(4)Expand

Resynchronization strategies to improve fertility in lactating dairy cows utilizing a presynchronization injection of GnRH or supplemental progesterone: I. Pregnancy rates and ovarian responses.
Objectives were to evaluate 3 resynchronization protocols for lactating dairy cows. At 32+/-3 d after pre-enrollment artificial insemination (AI; study d -7), 1 wk before pregnancy diagnosis, cowsExpand

Minimal progesterone concentration required for embryo survival after embryo transfer in lactating Holstein cows.
Objectives were to determine progesterone concentration (P4) from days 4 to 28 relative to presumptive estrus necessary for maintenance of pregnancy in lactating Holstein cows. Cows were assigned toExpand

Evaluation of presynchronized resynchronization protocols for lactating dairy cows.
The objectives of this experiment were to determine the speed at which cows that had their estrous cycle presynchronized with a GnRH or PGF(2α) injection are reinseminated and become pregnant.Expand

Yeast product supplementation modulated feeding behavior and metabolism in transition dairy cows.
Yeast supplementation has been shown to increase feed intake and production in some studies with early lactation dairy cows, but the mechanisms underlying such an effect remain unknown. The objectiveExpand

Low progesterone concentration during the development of the first follicular wave reduces pregnancy per insemination of lactating dairy cows.
Objectives were to determine the effect of progesterone (P4) concentration on fertility of lactating dairy cows induced to ovulate follicles of the first follicular wave. Lactating dairy cows (n=989)Expand

Effects of resynchronization strategies for lactating Holstein cows on pattern of reinsemination, fertility, and economic outcome.
The objectives were to evaluate the pattern of re-insemination, pregnancy outcomes to re-insemination in estrus and at fixed time, and economic outcomes of lactating Holstein cows submitted to threeExpand

Dose frequency of prostaglandin F2α administration to dairy cows exposed to presynchronization and either 5- or 7-day Ovsynch program durations: Ovulatory and luteolytic risks.
We hypothesized (1) that neither duration of the Ovsynch program nor dose frequency of PGF2α would change the proportion of cows with complete luteolysis (progesterone <0.4 ng/mL 72 h after PGF2α)Expand

Comparison of peripartum metabolic status and postpartum health of Holstein and Montbéliarde-sired crossbred dairy cows.
Objectives of the current experiment were to evaluate plasma concentrations of metabolites and haptoglobin peripartum, uterine health and involution, and follicle growth and resumption of cyclicityExpand

Yeast product supplementation modulated humoral and mucosal immunity and uterine inflammatory signals in transition dairy cows.
The transition from late gestation to early lactation is characterized by substantial metabolic stress and altered immune function. The objective of this study was to assess the effects ofExpand
