The objective of this study was to determine whether plasma concentrations of progesterone (P4) from a controlled internal drug releasing (CIDR) device (approximately 2 ng/ml) were adequate to sustain a persistent first wave dominant follicle (FWDF) in low body condition (LBC, body condition score [BCS] 1 = lean, 5 = fat [2.3 +/- 0.72, n = 4]) compared with high body condition (HBC, BCS = 4.4 +/- 0.12, n = 4) nonlactating dairy cows. On Day 7 of the estrous cycle (Day 0 = estrus), cows were… CONTINUE READING
