  • Silastic beads were inserted into the uterine lumen on Day 10 after oestrus. Gilts received beads containing oestradiol-17 beta only, oestradiol benzoate, or oestradiol-17 beta+prostaglandin (PG) E-2. Oestrous cycles were slightly longer in treated than in untreated pigs (20.2 +/- 0.4 days), and durations were 22.6 +/- 1.3, 26.2 +/- 1.7 and 23.2 +/- 1.8 days for oestradiol-17 beta, oestradiol benzoate and oestradiol-17 beta+PGE-2 treatments, respectively (P greater than 0.05). Thus, PGE-2 and… CONTINUE READING
