Antibiotics are usually used to combat microbial infections of the uterus, responsible for hindering establishment of pregnancy in cross-bred cows. The major disadvantages of antibiotics are: development of bacterial resistance, high costs and diminishing uterine defense mechanisms (UDM). As an alternative therapy, intrauterine application of Escherichia coli Lipopolysaccharide (E. coli LPS) as a uterine defense stimulator was used in this study in confirmed clinical cases of repeat breeding… CONTINUE READING
