Two experiments were carried out to examine therapeutic effect of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone analog, buserelin, on ovarian follicular cysts in dairy cows. Follicular cysts were diagnosed by palpation per rectum as well as by milk progesterone assay. Luteinization of the follicular cysts following treatment was judged by an increase in milk progesterone. In Experiment 1, 35 cows were diagnosed to have follicular cysts on the basis of palpations and low milk progesterone concentrations 1… CONTINUE READING
